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.

Aw, this is so beautiful.
I'm pretty ashamed to say that so much of this sounds so familiar to me and is 100% relatable.

Well Thank you:)
n don't be ashamed...I obviously felt this way once or I wouldn't have wrote this poem...so as long as you free yourself from who you are wrapped around and become the true you there's no shame in that:)

I agree you shouldn't have to change who you are for the person that you love.

too many people do and you shouldn't lose yourself while trying to find love

This is a great! I think it expresses the feelings of many teen girls today. The quest to be original but still blend in is a hard path, but an important one.

Love this, the rhyming is great and the emotions are so true! By the way, I love your quote! "Remember, you were born an original so why die a copy!" Beautiful.
