I Am Poem: Self Reflection
Look at her over there,
she seems to look, she seems to stare.
You see how her hands do shake
And tremble as she stands.
And smile a smile, a smile os fake
With her hair in messy strands.
she looks at me, but then away
As if I were not there?
Before my eyes, her face like clay
I see it turn so fair.
Those eyes quite wet
For she did weep,
I warned her not to fret.
But she did cry a lake so deep
And seemed in it to drown.
'Oh why so sad?' I try to ask
But she wears her sadness like a gown.
she turns her face to reveal a mask
As if she were not there,
As I reach out, my path is blocked.
The Pain's too much to bare.
she holds her breath but I do not.
I watch her watch me from the lake
And slip away so slow,
In my chest my heart did break
As I saw her go.
But this to a stranger would have shown,
A Girl, with a mirror, all alone.
