    Life As Art

    When I looked in the bathroom mirror today - on the first day of my new job - I didn't recognise myself. It wasn't the smart clothes or shiny shoes. It was the look in my eyes. It was a look that said there was a new chapter to write. Just a month ago, I had stood looking...

    At The Right Moment

    That face.  Those features which I know so well.  Those eyes which have seen all my secrets, all the unknowable things about me and my life.  It's not the face which others see.  It's the opposite, the mirror image.  Do I ever show my true self to others...

    Bare Before The Mirror.....

    When the soft cashmere lies crumpled   and the gentle silk is cast aside  When the satin slinks down to the floor  and the last ***** of lace lies idly by....  Then only I remain, uncompromised  Authentic and natural, open and bare  From warm tendrils curling down my...

    Just Me

      I walk to lifes mirror and what do I see I see just me looking back at me Gone are the fancy wrappings that I hide in so well Gone are the smiles and laughter that draws a veil I look into the windows of my soul and see The raw naked truth of who I am and who I ...

    Defining Reflection

    Expressing beneath the fog and the mistLamenting to a vision yesterday kissedImage in neither dream or memory Flares of light in a haunting story. Echoes of a mystery waiting in silenceReverberating sounds of a bruising absenceLikeness to a nymph whose voice only...

    Mirrors Are Not Distant, They Are Like A Flat Blank Thought

    I always thoguht mirrors had a distance "in" them... but as i look closer..its just a "reflection" of something on a reflective object that "reflects" images, not distances.... thought should be on the image.  focus should be on the image..not trying to see afar..not trying to...

    The Girl...

    The girl in the mirror...I use to hate her, I would avert my eyes. Then one day I looked for a long time, and I cried... I would spend over two hours in the mirror making her just right. Then one day I looked into her eyes, and I cried... Now I look at that girl in the mirror...

    The Girl In The Mirror

    There's this girl in the mirror, I wonder who she is. Sometimes I think I know her and sometimes I wish I did. There is a story in her eyes, lullabies, and goodbye. When she's looking back at me I can see the pain in her eyes , she can't even look at herself in the eyes...

    Sometimes

    Sometimes, I will come home from a day of work, pull my hair out of the ponytail it was, and just stare into the mirror.  Then i say, "damn girl, you truly are beautiful."  So many days in my life I have walked in front of that mirror and not said anything, or walked...

    I Am The Same Girl

    So things didn't work out. On Friday I was on top of the world and about to start a new life in a new job. On Monday, I was bottom of the heap and that new life was over. Not only did I lose the new job, but I lost the one I turned down in favour of it, and the current one I am...

    I Am The Girl Inside My Cell Phone Camera

    I notice, for the first time, my face is gaunt. After so many years of having a baby face, always a bit chubby no matter what I weighed, this is a new development. My face is now more like the letter V; prominent cheekbones that look skeletal at certain angles. I tilt the phone...

    Finding God

    Growing up as a little girl wasn't the easiest for me, but not the most difficult either. For so long I was abused as a child, and in the fourth grade I was officially diagnosed with Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD), which I still have to this day. Attending school I was...
