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.
I can't reach 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 a 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. :]
