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.

A single hard working mom of a soon to be teenage son. A poet and story teller I have wanted to write since I was a child. This space is where I share stories about myself and my life and the creative poetry that stirs my soul. My hope is you will pull up a chair and a cup of coffee delving into the world that I offer and you find simple enjoyment for a few moments. Welcome to The Wonderful & Wacky World of One Single Mom
