Mirror Imagery

Published: November 2009

Glittering eyes, full of smiles
Happy and proud all the way around
Never shad a tear, never scream out in fear
Never shown any signs of disappointment
or any signs of annoyance

Betrayed, lied, broken hearted
Still laughing at the pain
You stand there staring at my delusive face
Questioning what goes on inside my mind
Contemplating on if I'm really fine

I am everything you want me to be
Everything and anything instead of me
You look at me and see one of the happiest teens
Never showing any signs of misleading or doubt
Pleading on the inside not to let my feelings out

Don't be fooled by what you see
This is nothing but mirror imagery

I find the poem describing me. I laugh a lot, smile a lot and hide the real me. Many ask what really am I thinking because I never express my feelings to people, not even my mom. I try finding true friends but I find no one deserves to called a true friend. I don't shed a tear because my eyes are dry from crying. My heart is tired of being hurt. I do as my parents wish, I do as my friends want but not a time have they asked me if I want to do what I want. Sometimes I wish to disappear and just be alone. No one cares if I'm happy or not. They don't even care if there is anything disturbing me. Life alone is tough. Without directions, without true friendship and without true love it feels unbearable. I am an imaginary mirror that is admired by everyone. But the true mirror is lost somewhere searching for true friendship not even love but true friendship.

I've been hurt a lot of times by so many people .They fill head with so many lies that I don't know what to think, I get up every morning trying to hide every emotion in my body but its so difficult. People say that it's maybe time to forgive I can't get it out of my system or mind.
