Mirrors

I love you.
Speak.
I did, now you
Have to do it too.
That’s precisely how this works.
Don’t lie.
You can deny all you want,
Your heart betrays your eyes.
You love me.
You have said it before.
How can getting what you want cause this?
What happened to “Love makes you free, you’ll see”?
I feel trapped within the walls that
You have built around your understated and overwhelming hypocrisy,
Duplicity designed to mirror your very existence.
Why won’t you look at me? Make eye contact?
Say those words?
You begged.
You practically pleaded.
Now you are the one I love most,
And you will leave
Me behind, listening to the mirror sigh.
