Another Poem I Like A Lot

The girl in the mirror  

When I look in the mirror, here is what I see The girl that I always wanted to be Long golden hair just past her shoulders I see With curls at the ends all bouncy and free Her makeup is just perfect, her cheeks all aglow Her eyes how they sparkle, and her lips a pale shade of rose. An image of perfection this girl that I see O' how I wish this girl were me

I watched in the mirror as she slipped on a dress of blue, All lace from top to bottom that was almost see through It clings to her body leaving nothing to hide Her hourglass figure with her shapely thighs With 4" high heels just right for her feet Her long and lean legs made her silhouette complete
As she puts on her hose and my legs have the sensation Of silky nylons and her fingers caressing With these feelings that I'm having could this be Is the girl in the mirror is actually me?

As I watched in the mirror as she is brushing her hair I feel the same brush strokes going through my own hair As she finishes her makeup, her lipstick her blush The feelings overwhelm me as I feel her light touch I touch my face and I am suddenly aware That her face, is my face, and I'm sitting here As I watched her transform from me to her And I now realize that she is me, and I am her I know this maybe confusing for some to read But this is the girl in the mirror is really me

I call her Linda; she's what I'd like to be She's the best of all that's inside of me She's wise, she's smart; she's witty and kind, She's the left side, or is it the right side, of what's left of my mind? And now I let her pick out my clothes from time to time Sometimes hers, sometimes mine

What a beautiful poem! How may of us can so completely relate with this wonderful expressive sentiment.

The girl in the mirror is beautiful.

Josie, Giley here, I really love this. It is fun to look at one's self in the mirror, and really take a look at who you see. You can fantasize about who maybe inside, but than maybe it is really me!! Stay safe my friend!! G
