“ Mirror, Mirror ” ~ on the wall ~

Mirror, mirror

On the wall

Hard to show

My face at all,

You make it seem

Like it was mauled …


Mirror, nearer

Your torment,

Can have me cry

And looking bent,

Instead of shy                                                                     

Of seeming spry

As I had meant…


Mirror, closer

You discuss,

A weathered face

Made hopeless case,

As craggy crust, 

Shows in its place…


Mirror, mirror

You violator

Of melancholy state,

Alas to so deface

What shan’t be salved

Thru your efface,

Or torturous onguent

Inflicts a malfeasant!

    • When I wrote this I was exploring as in trying to peek into future feelings, mine I suppose, about what was to come and that had already started, if but to imagine the feelings all humans must face eventually. Nature’s proof of control over all living things, whether we realize it or refuse to accept it, makes no difference. C’est la vie, ma chérie! Jean-Jacques Fournier

    • OK! It’s a date… Though I do hope I hear from you again before 20 years, for that blink of an eye period seems a long blink wait for an update. Jean-Jacques Fournier
