Against the Looking Glass

October 17, 2008
By Nathan Caldwell, Gurnee, IL

Your mirrored eyes that never sleep,
Endless gaze, forever deep
Blind eyes watch me come and go,
Coolly watching ebb and flow,
Blankly watching my vanity,
Glazed eyes unshackled by humanity,
Blankly giving my reflection,
Silent voice, sans inflection,
Patiently watching me
Change to what I wish to be,
Watch me bare before the world
Sees my made up self unfurled,
You, who know me best of all,
Hanging there upon my wall
