Mirror

You know there’s nothing I can do
But hold you and let the pain course through your heart
You stare into a silver mirror
And hand it to me
What have I become? you ask
I can only shake my head

I hope one day you’ll know
That at least I tried
And that every day of my life
I go through each step of the journey
And ask myself
If there is something that could have changed the outcome

I guess
We’ll never know
But this mission was doomed from the start
The moment the mirror hit the floor
And shattered
You were already gone

Would someone mind rating or commenting on my work? I am a new writer, and I just want to know how I'm doing... It's okay if it's negative, but thank you!!!
