Lost in Love

When I look into the mirror,
The reflection I see is you.
I no longer recognize myself,
I wish that wasn't true.
Everyday I'm pretending,
I'm disguised with lies.
You are my new identity,
You're the soul behind my eyes.
The only thing I can hear,
Is your voice inside my head.
Where have I gone,
The real me seems dead.
I don't remember who I was,
You have been me for so long.
You made my like seem right,
When everything appeared wrong.
I am captive in your love,
In your chains I am bound.
I'm searching for myself.
The true me needs to be found.

This is so beautiful! It's sad and heartbreaking but so deeo and meaningful. I can so easily relate to it cuz i remember I've been pretending to be someone I'm not just so I can fit in and be appreciated and noticed. But thank god now I realize how wrong I was, that being myself is enough. I learned to say :"Either accept me this way or go look the other way" Great job, keep itup and thanks for sharing this

This is a very great poem, it is very deep and it really speaks.

Your poem was really deep in thought, and had really good rhyming to it. When I read your poem I found that it was a sonnet poem. I also found some assonance used in some of the ending words of a verse.
