The mirror and the glass
If only you knew me, you'd know that you don't fool me
Maybe you see me, but you don't see through me
I know you feel me, or maybe I fill your lonely
If you did love him, then why is it that you hold me?
You'd wouldn't come seek me if you felt that you didn't need me
I want for you to be freed and maybe then you'd really see me
Its not that I'm being greedy, but I want you to trust and believe me
I listen to you keenly and when you're in my arms I'm a serene being

But our time is short and going fast, there's a chance that this won't last
Or maybe your mixed signals just mask, something missing from what he cast
I just hope you realize that your past is just that; the past, and you need to look past that
Its like a mirror and a glass, one looks back and one looks past that
I'm willing to be your glass and look past the mask that you look back at
So, the next time that mirror looks back, ask if you want to look back to a past's thats
One that you always looks back at you and makes you question if you had time back
Would you still be okay having to mask laughs or would you rather have taken a chance on that glass?

I understand what seems to be the frustration. This is a really neat write. Sorry I haven't been by for a while...

I probably spend more time reading poetry than writing because each poem is something new for me.  There isn't a day I don't come across a relation, comparison, etc. that is striking and up until the presentation-unknown to me even though it's been right in front of me the whole time.  Your mirror and glass is my poem for the day.  Glad I stopped by.

A fantastic write indeed....good to know it's not symbolic.
