Poem: The Cracks

mirror colorful

I see through you.
What? Me.
Yes, you.
Impossible, I am your reflection.
I could smash you into pieces.
But you’ll show up elsewhere when you least expect it.
Like in a window reflection.
I’d pop up in someone’s glasses.
In the face of someone you love
or someone you despise.
I’m always there…

Well he was the one
who attempted to enter her
uninvited.

It tore her
left her broken
in two.

So now she remains
alone
solo
