    This was written after many months of observing a girl, who in my Creative Writing class would do nothing but put on her makeup. Seriously, she sits there the ENTIRE hour looking at herself in a mirror every single day. :rolleyes:

    A Missing Reflection

    A mirror is stained on your hand,
    And it's suggested that you can see
    What other's can't.
    As you learn things you never knew,
    You can see the paranoia building up in the view.

    You're percieved as vain to few,
    But you're meerly insecure to many.

    The mirror simply reflects the mind,
    And to your surprise, you'll come to find
    That your state of being lies deeper than
    Your skin, and you'll find it almost uncanny,
    that every assumption was accurate.

    And you'll stare forever into the eyes
    Of your mistakes, and you'll do whatever it takes
    To banish your narcissistic sins.

    Clearly, clarity is a mystery, and
    Not apart of your vocabulary.
    However, when you realize that you never
    Will be what you want yourself to seem,

    And your ill will
    Will not wake you from your horrifying dream,
    You will look at yourself like never before,
    And you will gradually end up hating everything
    You so yearned for.

    have to agree... you must be able to have the ability to see into someone elses soul making powerful observations like that. always good for writing... ;)

    It's amazing how you compared what she saw in the mirror to her inner self, you must fucking rawk at creative writing! :lol:
    ...needless to say, she must be failing.
