The Girl In The Mirror

Over and over,
dry skin flakes off my shoulders,
crumbs of a younger me,
revealing new layers that nobody
has seen.

I watch the girl in the mirror watch
back. We do not know each
other and, I think, we never will.

  1. you can see her because shes the past but she cant see you because youre in the future.. thats why you never met..
    i used to think that i wont like growing old.. but then i realized that growing is wonderful and if getting old is a condition of it, well then im all out with loosing the ‘bragging rights of youth’
    interesting poem

  2. i don’t like mirrors. barely look at them, surly not to see myself. They are good for watching others. to see myself all i have to do is close my eyes and stare into the darkness.

  3. I like our stuff. Reading work like yours makes me a better poet. Not because I might steal your poetry, but only that I may learn from your style, which is very good. Thanks also for commenting on my work. It means a lot coming from you.

    The girl in the mirror can be your best friend with a little bit of effort and honesty. And yes, courage! Sometimes we are too scared of ourselves . πŸ™‚
