THE BOY ON THE MIRROR

Updated on March 20, 2013

He sits so casually~

Looking where we can not see~

The boy on the mirror~

He is older than he looks to be.


He sits above the mirror~

In a green velour stuffed chair~

While his brown velvet outfit~

Makes him seem so comfortable there.

Brunette curly locks in-case~

His milky pallid face~

He is so cute with a dab of a nose~

A perfect heart shaped lip closed.

Frilly white lace in-circles his neck~

The same frills decorate his wrist~

Brightening his hair as one hand~

Rest behind his perfect bent head.

The boy on the mirror~

With the nickered pants~

Looks so cozy and warm~

Wearing white knee high socks~

And loafer black shoes~

As his legs slightly crossed~

Dangle free and loose.


The mirror’s frame gives the boy~

His own bordered square~

As the reflective antique mirror~

Hazed grey now for its remaining days~

Never had the chance to emulate~

This boy’s restful state.

Silver wood is the frame this boy~

Is kept in~

Never has he had a chance to play or~

To ever Taste the bitterness of sin.

Illustrated there~

In a surrounding dark dismal room~

The boy has always sat at the top of the mirror~

In his chair~

Watching life walk by~

Seeing contentment and~

Some of life filled with gloom~

Most people walking by without care~

That the boy observes them as they loom there.

Always there hanging on the~

Dinning room wall~

On the thinned outlined mirror~

The boy has sat~

Watching life for more years than mine have past.

Does the boy I wonder now so mellowed with age~

Wished he could of partake with life as a soul~

Instead of watching it walk by and away~

Only taking what real people have doled for his days? ~


Or is he more happy~

Sitting in his comfortable chair~

For more than I have known years~

As a little charming boy at ease~

Demure and unaware doing as he pleased?

He sits so casually~

Looking where we can not see~

The boy on the mirror~

He is older than he looks to be.


He sits above the mirror~

In a green velour stuffed chair~

While his brown velvet outfit~

Makes him seem so comfortable there.

      I had an image of "The Blue Boy" trapped in the dimension of his painting. Very classical, beautiful piece.
