Departed Reflection

(Buchenwald, Germany, 1943)

Who is this person with the withered skin?

Why am I not there?

Two black, sunken eyes stare back at me

from within the mirror?

Who is this defeated spirit looking at me?

Crushed soul despair,

locked deeply within his inane stare.

Who is he?

Does he know where I have gone?

Who is he?

this is kind of haunting in that I look every day at someone who looks like me.. but isnt the "me" I feel on the inside .. funny how age makes the image change so slowly,, but one day,, and soon .. it changes again and again.. till you think youre looking at someone else.. ever read "the mirror"? I posted it some time back ..has a lot of the same feeling as this fine piece. great job bro... dino
