The Mirror

The Mirror


Silvered glass

Mirroring humanity

You smile I smile

You raise a fist

Mine rises

Never knowing

True emotion

Merely reflecting

What I see

If you hit me

I break

Shatter into pieces

Before you

Admire me

And I reward

With flattering


No goal no aim

Just before you


Who you are



  1. Shivers. What a powerful poem, Pen. It is most wonderful to see you here.
