"Don't cry because it's over, smile because is happened."

I couldn’t help but notice
Reflections in your eyes
Yet when I turned to seal the fate
Reflections were just lies

Twisting turning cheating lies
Are what have brought us here
To a place where memories fade
And reflections show your fears

Fears of going back
To when memories were born
Yet after all we have gone through
Time is what we mourn

I never would have noticed
Reflections in your eyes
If not for
Memories adored
Yet seemingly only reflections

Simple and great.  Love how you split the sentences and make the poem alive.

I really like this! Sometimes rhyming takes away from the poem but you did a nice job with it :)

I liked your poem. It was very intersting. The only suggestion is maybe extended on this whole reflection of memories theme. Other that i found this poem really good.
