Looking in the mirror I see a girl looking back at me, she moves when i do, but does not act as me,

she smiles,
when i am frowning,

she is brave,
when i am scared,

she is unharmed,
when i am hurt,

her eyes are haunting,
just like my own,

it seems she has more to tell,
but does she?

everyone seems to know how she feels,
but i am lost

who is this girl i see,
because it cant possibly be me...

This is so good! Very relatable. I like your wording and the flow. Really liked "Looking in the mirror I see a girl looking back at me, she moves when I do, but does not act as me". Loved it[:

This one has a better flow than the last, but a bit less emotion. all i could realy feel was an indecision, as if you werent sure you have the right words when you posted it. good poem though.
