I hide when you are outside because my friend the Shadow clings to your side. They only show a hazy image, but I show a perfection from many directions, in all your mirrors, I abide.
I must laugh when you sashay around in your fancy underwear or the slinky black Cocktail dress, but sometimes I want to scream; your hair is a stringy mess! I caught you smoothing with your boo, and you grabbed his hand from behind your waist to prevent it from slipping down too low. Whoa he replies, with that little boy look in his eyes, smiling wide he says; who’s to know, but in your mirror my reflection will show.
You are very funny, especially when you act like a little girl and recite that Fairy Tale line; mirror, mirror but I still think your fine and never a boor, but when it comes to wit, you are not that sharp blade in the drawer.
I always show all things as they are whether they are happy or blue, I show all to you, by the way, spandex on you looks great, those pink shorts have me looking for more.
I do get irked when you hang garments on a hook over my mirror so I can’t look, I hope it don’t take a day for you to take them away. Then, happily I can say; glad I can see you anew, you see me and I see you!
Ken, this is AWESOME and I loved it very much. You are so very clever and now I know what lurks in those spaces - your creativity! Had me really laughing hard. You are 'cruelly' talented. Hahaha. All because of the mirror.
Thanks Mel, glad you did like my weird Tale to tell. The 50 years being married to my wife gave me lots of material to work with, especially when it comes to humor and I'm glad familiarity in our lives did not build contempt! When she is getting ready to go out with her friends, she pops in my PC room and asks; is there a hole in the back of my head (Her Hair)? I reply; yes a big one! Then I tell her no, it's good. Glad I made you laugh! The lo-vie little fuzz ball Ken
Thanks Michael, glad you enjoyed the poem and the wit, experience is the best Teacher in life and I've had tons! I was a wild ass in my younger days but after a long marriage with a God given wife, that calmed me down big time!
