The Reflection in the Mirror

Updated on August 28, 2012
LaThing.. Poetess
LaThing.. Poetess

This is dedicated to LaThing... my Reflection in the Mirror


I saw a reflection..sadness, pain

it sounded like me

yet filled with love

this reflection in the mirror...how could this be


I was so stunned...

I had to turn and look away

the words were the same

they did not stray


Yes they were... my thoughts

my feelings... my heart...

but when I looked again

I was given a start...


Just who was this

other person.. that I seen

her words... so soft

so fresh ...so clean


She was my reflection

known as... LaThing

As if like a bell

in my brain... she did ring


Her poetry was so her...

I had copied... it seemed

all of her words... as if

we were in the same dream


The finding of someone who is...

the reflection...I see

The Poet ..LaThing

It can be said.....You are me

      My Archangel,

      I am going to take a different approach by way of my comment...

      Let's say that 'the mirror' showed much more than a 'reflection...'

      Let's say that LaThing, has provided you with a glimpse of what your 'soul' looks like...

      Much love,

      Blessings!

      Ciao...Princess Prisca

      Faith Reaper, thank you for the comments and the visit. I read a few of LaThing poems and they were from the heart . this was my inspiration for this write of mine , I mean hers, oops , I mean her words are so full of sadness pain, and especially emotion that does come from her heart, yet so lovingly. God bless you.

      cleaner - I mean, LaThing, no cleaner, this is awesome and beautiful tribute to a lovely poetess no doubt!!! Your words are so very beautifully stunning. After reading LaThing's comment, I was relieved, as for a minute there, I thought you may be one of those hubbers who has two identities here on HP- whew, am I relieved! Ha. Seriously, this is just so beautifully written straight from your heart. God bless you. In His Love, Faith Reaper

      Micheal, I am speechless! This is beautiful..... But I think the one who stands in front of the mirror (you) is a much better poet than the reflection (me) in the mirror! You are a true poet, I have seen how you write on the spot..... I have to look for inspiration to write! I thank you from the bottom of my heart for such a lovely piece ...... I am learning from the pros like you.....
