My Reflection

by Valerie   Apr 29, 2005

I stare at my reflection
and am lost in a gaze
I'm not the image of perfection
not in any way
Reflections tell some truths
they also tell some lies
They explain to you your youth
and I allow myself to hide
The image that I see
is not of how I feel
I know that it is me
but everything is surreal
Reflections show my scars
The ones that made me bleed
but they fail to show my heart
where wounds lie too deep
No one will see the facts
I'll pretend until forever
I'll put you on an act
and be funny, happy, and clever
I smile at my reflection
Knowing it's all a lie
I'll keep this secret deception
until the day I die
