Reflections,
I reach out,
Holding all our emptiness,
Solitude...
We are nothing.





Memories,





Seduction burned,
Is that all that's left to say?
...All that you reveal?







Darkness grazes her skin,
Tempting her face to turn,
Stare into his cold, shimmering eyes,
Forget...


Herself.





Him.







What she thought would be...
Screaming for freedom,
Still addicted to the poison,
Of Hurt.
Agony.
Desire...



Why must she burn?
Inside The Mirror,
She remembers....






Only lies.

This is my take on feeling insecure with yourself, always looking over your shoulder at the mistakes you made in the past... And when you look in the mirror you see two sides of you: Who you are, and what the world tells you you are.

The thoughts that fly through our minds as we stare into the mirror.. Wonderful imagery. Couldn't help but think of the girl and boy standing in a sort of dark haze.. "Darkness grazes her skin" really set the tone for me

I really like this I think your idea for writing was great. People always have two personalities and it takes a while for them to find themselves. good work

It seems kinda... disjointed to me. I don't know, maybe that is just me being ADD. But that doesn't mean this is a bad piece, I just like some of your others more :) Keep on writing :)

I like this poem.. Reminds me of what someone would be like after a one night stand. Well done. I still don't like the spaces inbetween though..
