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.
