Pain of the Mirror

November 20, 2010
Mirrors don't lie
At least that's what she believes
They show only the outside of her
She straightens her hair
Covers her face with the makeup that's not needed
Such a beautiful girl
Who sees what is not true
What others say,
Really breaks her heart
Little does she know,
Beauty is only skin deep!
Her looks don't define her
She has so much going for her
So many people secretly envy her;
They know they can never be her
She puts on a smile for all the people around
If only she could see...

I would describe this poem as crunchy, if that makes any sense at all. The idea is amazing, if not a little used. But you may be on to something...

I really like this poem, it's very creative. But i think if you were to use more rhyming words, it would add more of a poetic feel to this. Also, the exclamation point should be taken out, because you want the emotion to come from the words. But other than that very nice job. (:

Thank you so much. :) I have more waiting for approval. They have much more emotion in them too. :)
