Always glaring at you
Watching with jeering eyes
Every breath you take
It takes with you
Following with judgment
Looking at the life you knew
Seeing the fragments
Of your life surround your spirit
Shattering in front of you
A million little shards of crystal
Beating down on your soul
When it used to be whole
Hurts as you look at the shell of the person you once knew
Seeing the reflection of doubt and despair
Flying freely eating you alive
Attacking like sharks on prey
Damaging and hurting you
Until there’s nothing left
Determined to beat this mirror’s mockery
You fight
White teeth shimmer with happiness
Reflecting the sunlight off your face
The warmth soothes you
It grasps your very core
Engulfing the bad memories
And The Mirror
Now watching and looking out for you
You fall; it picks you back up
Always there helping you
Never giving up

I liked how descriptive the emotions in this poem were, when you were talking about the pain ypu see in the mirror, i could really feel every inkling of pain. I really liked that you decided to look past it and see the broghter side of things.

You are very talented at writing poetry, keep writing!
