Reflection


I can’t recognize her.
I can’t fade her.
She’s in the same rut once again.
I stared at her for several minutes, as the room went in and out of focus.
I told her he isn’t any good for her, whatever he’s giving her, she can find else where.
The words linger but don’t settle.
When will they sink in?
The closer I get to the mirror, the less I can make out.
She’s surrounded with a haze of denial.
And it won't let me get to her.
It’s even worst knowing what you have to do & not doing it at all.
It’s a damn curse.
It’s an enchantment that has doomed her for what seems like eternity.
Love has become wreckage she can’t comprehend.
Love isn’t the word for this chaos.
She knows what it really is.
She’s known it for several years.
As I stare at her, I can see her lips moving, her eyes trying to focus.
I take a step back and she mimics my every move.
Every wink and grasp for air is imitated perfectly.
She and I aren’t any different.
Treacherous thing.
I’m staring at my own reflection.

:) As a matter of fact Adele has a perfect song for this.

I let it fall, my heart,
And as it fell you rose to claim it
It was dark and I was over
Until you kissed my lips and you saved me

But I set fire to the rain,
Watched it pour as I touched your face,
Well, it burned while I cried
'Cause I heard it screaming out your name, your name!

Lee. Every song that Adele has ever sung, I KNOW. Lol. I'm obsessed with her. Any of my friends can tell you that. She's the female version of Kanye West. I'm infatuated with both. Ay. :]
