Am I Here At All?

by Kaylee   Mar 26, 2006

Mirror mirror staring
Through my entire soul,
Can you see past the
Reflection and tell me
If I’m here at all?

Wasting into nothing but
Bare bones and broken heart.
I am not starving myself
But losing everything that
I have ever loved.

Mirror mirror creating a
Facade of me, seeing me differently.

Peel back my layers
Of insecurity, panicking
From something I don’t know.

Thinking that I am nothing
But a shadow haunting the
Walls of life.

Walking this earth with
My hands shaking
Needing something to stay alive.

One touch makes me
Feel weighted down to
The floor for eternity.

No need to be chained
Up in hell, I am living in
It when I see you.

Fiery demons no longer
Chasing me because they
Know where I will wait.

Those creatures I notice
When I see your eyes.
Heaven doesn’t want me anymore.

Mirror mirror staring
Through my entire soul,
Am I really here at all?

In this mind reaching
For some thought that
Could provide nourishment?

This body that freezes
When somebody comes
To give me a hug.

Am I really here at all?

No need to be chained
Up in hell, I am living in
It when I see you.

Forget about being a
Soul lost at sea, I am
Drowning from this pain.

Sometimes I wonder,
Am I here at all?

*This poem was personal to me because recently I've been wondering who I am. I don't think I deserve some of the comments I've been getting but I am grateful for them.*

    I am astounded. Firstly because some as talented as you could ever doubt yourself and secondly because of the freedom and energy in this poem. I particulary like the way you repeated the mirror line it reflected how you saw yourself throughout the poem. The imagery was out of this earth and at time literally. I thought it was a tad too long but still well written...
