Mirror

I see you standing over there,

My vision of you so unclear.

I tried to remember your smell,

But it’s been so long it’s hard to tell,

Whether you are the same—

Your reflection distorted through the lens of my blurred pane.

 

I close my eyes and try to remember your smile—

Something I haven’t seen in a while.

Memories of you have been jaded,

And as time goes by they have faded—

Into the distorted reflection of my blurred pane.

 

Promises have clearly been broken,

My dreams were so tied up in you.

And though there were thing that were unspoken,

Now it seem like I don’t know what to do—

When it’s my reflection that’s been distorted through the lens of my blurred pane.
