She looks at the mirror 

She sees her mirror image

But she didn’t want to see herself

Like this way ever.

The Kajol, which once beautifully darkened her eyes

Has now smudged so bad

And the tears drop down her cheeks

Accompanied by the smudged kajol.

The cheeks, once rosy

Now so pale, seems almost bloodless

Once nourished with moisturisers,

Now soaked with those tears.

Her lips, EVERPINK

Once softer than petals

Now drier than desert, and wounded

The blood hasn’t stopped still.

Her hair, once shinier than the morning sun

Now as dull as cloudy sky.

She didn’t expect to be like this

She hated her current looks

She hated the image more than anything

Once she had nothing to hate.

She looks at her mirror image

With her scornful eyes

And takes the showpiece of lovebirds

And throws it to the mirror.

Now she looks at the shattered pieces

Every piece makes the image

Of parts of her face, again those images

She hates the most

And she laughs out at the pieces

As there’re less glass pieces than the pieces of her heart.

      1. Indeed. Actually I’ve never published them because they are from the time that I hadn’t found my true way and was in a complete confusion, But you may find the trace of it’s darkness leading to the light in some of my posts like “sometimes”.

      1. People with good sense of poetry and those who love poetry always try to create something with mirror….as it reflects just images but the poetic minds search for reflections of life❤

        Glad to have your feedback on this, wish to read your post on mirror.😊

  1. Wow!!
    I loved the comparison between what she was and what she is!
    Pain and frustration portrayed so well..

    And the conclusion was spot on!!

    “And she laughs out
    at the pieces
    As there’re less glass pieces
    than the pieces of her heart.” Wow!

    1. I’m so glad to have your feeback onto this post, as you’re the Queen of “darkness” and now I believe I’ve created a “wow” post😄
      My bipolar mind subconsciously thinks about bright and dark thoughts and so my posts are mixed with them. Hope to have your feeback on my future posts….specially the dark once😏✌

        One more thing….I just loved your “The ribbons”. The finale is awesome and when I read the end of it I was thinking about it almost throughout the day and the next day….and the day after that….awesome👌
