It approaches
Lingering shadows
Filling the blackness
Haunting illusions
Filling empty spaces
Surrounding the innermost
Profound secrets
Hiding in the night

When life has you stuck

Give it a nice, gentle push

Show it who is boss

The Mirror Reflects ~ #poetry

Locked inside this pane of glass

The world is just outside my grasp

No one seems to see me here

I’m lost forever, this I fear

Stuck inside, this isolation

There is no hope, for my salvation

For those that I have sinned against

This is how I’m recompensed

Kept hidden, though I know not where

The mirror reflects, my own despair

The Same ~ A Fable

Tags

Author’s note:  I blame the lack of sleep for this unusual piece, now added to my collection of fiction.  Thank you for suffering along with me and my odd sense of writing  😉


“You’re embarrassing me”

“Me? Have you taken a good look at yourself?”

“Whatever do you mean?”

“Really, must you two always bicker about the same thing?”

“Well, she looks awful!”

“I do not, you do”

And as the father treed sighed, listening to the two women trees bicker over whose hair looked better, the moon quietly watched. He had heard it all before. Though he knew the barren branches of the trees would never be tamed, he continued to shine on them, a light to illuminate their differences, a glow to show them they were, indeed, the same.  Beautiful.

The nighttime sizzles

When skies turn into fire

During summer’s heat
