I write what I feel…

Looking Glass



You sense the world that passes by

With expressionless face and blinded eye

And I, beside you, see myself

Reflected in your polished skin ~

You change appearance on a whim ~

I look at you, but who I see

Looking back is only me.

I am a middle-aged South African woman, living in Johannesburg. I began writing poetry towards the end of May 2010. I love animals – sometimes more than people! I am back after a break. Thanks for still being here, if you are! Missed you! xxx

  5. The mirrored image of oneself, seldom reflects how others see us.. Again, a thought provoking work Denise thank you for sharing..
