Mirror Image

***Image found via Pintrest***
Standing before the mirror
staring at the image within
seeing black shadows
grasping round the frame.
Poking and grabbing
at the image of me
causing her pain
no,
me pain?
I do not even know any more.
For once again
I cannot tell
the truth of reality
and deception.
For all I can see
in the mirror image
are the tears flowing within.
