the mirror is my drug . can't even go hours let alone minutes with out just alittle taste of the glass. I rely on the warmth it gives me. It desires my attention and i fill the crave. It knows i need it to make it through the day. It wants me, all of me and i'm happy to comply. But Im losing myself to the reflection it gives. Even though the glass speaks to me, saying the right things at the right time, it isn't always on my side. It builds up so much love for myself, to then take it all away; leaving me down and depressed. Even though it knows damn well I was going to come back for more. The mirror has a mind. A smart one too. My reflection controls me. I let the image of the mirror dictate how I am to feel. But why? I shouldn't rely on the opposite side of the glass. I'll let go of the mirror so I can speak for myself. Let my voice overcome the need and desire for the glass.

This represents so many teenage girls nowadays, and I love the feeling in it, the only thing I think it needs work on is the stucture, maybe play with stanzas or shapes more?

The best part about this is definitely the block text. Was that on purpose? Its great- it makes the poem become a rectangle, like a mirror; I can see my own face in the text. Genius.

I really like how you connect the addiction people have to drugs to people that are always in front of a mirror 24/7.  Awesome job! :)

Loved the personification/imagery combination. Your writing is strong enough to resonate, and (just like your Exit poem) I love your simple/long word combinations, it totally adds power. 

I might consider, not change necessarily because this is a lovely poem, mixing up your sentance structure-like adding in some longer sentances with commas to your shorter ones.

A wonderful poem, keep posting! :)

Yet this I call to mind and therefore I have hope: Because of Gods great love, we are not consumed. His compassion never fail. They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness.

this is good, i think a lot of people struggle with looking at their image too much and soon get an unhealthy addiction with making themselves look perfect for the satisfaction of looking in the mirror and feeling good about themselves. nice!
