Mirror, Mirror

Category: Issue 8, Poetry/Lyrics Winners

Mirror, Mirror,
Staring through perpetuity
Fingers brushing replication
Self-symmetry, angles, curves
Metamorphosis in the eyes of a stranger.

On the wall…
silvered glass
Echoes truth,
Tainting the perfection
She hides behind.

Who is the fairest…
Light refracts a foreign face,
The synthetic touching reality,
An answer creating itself
Out of frozen time.

One of all?
static moments thaw,
Running into one another
Like a child‘s tears, crying out
“Not you.”
