Reflection

Location

My reflection is 

a mirage

purely an image 

Based

on deception

hidden with lies

buried in secret

It whispers happiness 

to me

But all I can see in

this reflection is 

a face, 

blurred

uneven,

uncertain

pain all around me

this reflection 

is empty

nothing compared 

to

perfection

just ordinary

but broken 

unyielding

unspoken

and not opened

behind this reflection 

is nothing important

just someone ordinary

just another person,

Behind this reflection,

I can be me.
