Tear-stained

by Baby Rainbow   Feb 7, 2013


Misjudging mirror,
you stare at me
and deceive my mind
as you only offer back
my weaknesses and flaws
through my tear-stained reflections.

Oh twisted sky
you follow me
with stormy clouds
after alluring my eyes
with your teasing sunshine
that burns my tear-stained horizon.

Trustworthy heart
you have broken me
by giving away my love
to those who don't deserve
and left me with an empty organ
and a lonely tear-stained spirit.

Oh voice of hope
you left me speechless
when you ran away from home
denying me of my future,
leaving me in solitude
with my deafening tear-stained silence.

    Mirrors are a great inspiration to poets, they offer a mystical notion when it comes to including them in our work.
    I applaud the author for beginning this with a huge dollop of alliteration, which smacks you in the face, this mirror is reflecting a depressive tendency, it is showing the subject what she wants to see.
    Then we move onto our other favourite, the sky!! Yet this is seen in a different perspective. It is twisted, they again see the worst in it which is a great reflection of how they are feeling.
    Then we have hearts and hope.
    What I liked about this is the fact she took those four common ingredients (mirrors, sky., heart, hope) and wrote an original poem that contains a lot of depressive emotion and a lot of original imagery.
    Well done.
