I look at my reflection
I’m not sure what it is you see
I see all the things that you deny
Things that lock me away
From the world outside

My reflection wavers
For a brief moment in time
I see past the delusions
The beauty of it
Takes my breath away
But only for a moment

The author's comments:
This was based on how I've felt towards myself in the past. I didn't see myself clearly, and was going through a turbulent time in my life.
