reflection
BrittStar i look i the mirror, but who do i see the reflection of a girl i know isn't me...they say she's pretty, they say she's smart, they say she has such a wonderful heart...but only if they could see inside, past the walls where she tries to hide...the lies she told to hide from her fears, to keep away those who tried to come near...her reflection so perfect to those around, her heart so dark, her true self never to be found... 010606

Bizzar When I look in the mirror, all I see is all that I wish I could be. I used to see an image I was more than satisfied with... but I now realize that image wasnt my own. It was his. And I lost it, when I let him go. 020609

~gez~ i look at mine, and think nothing of it. just another random face of a person i could get to know someday. i cannot look at othersm but as i look at them in person the truth dawns. people always put themselves down, and i do not understand why? do they not realise it can be rather offputting

not majorly, just little things

lou_la_belle sometimes as i look at my reflection, i dont see myself. i'll see my father, my mother, even my half-brother. in fact, the more i look, the less i see that is my own. that makes me wonder...if my body is so much of my ancestors, what of my personality? am i merely an amalgamation of eveyone before me? is there anything about me thats unique? do i reflect so clearly that which they were that there is nothing of mine own left? i hope not. i mean, i dont mind having bits of my past with me, its rather comforting really, but it would be nice to know that there's something of myself that is no one else's. it would be such a great pity if everyone was just a reflection of their desendants, and life was merely repeating itself in different arrangements. odd thought that... 040508

emmi i think tis interesting how when you walk by a building where you see yourself reflected in the glass, or walk by a mirror that you didn't know was there, you catch something about yourself that you've never seen before. because you're completely relaxed and being yourself. everyone puts on a certain expression when looking in the mirror, or posing for a camera. and then people think the reflection of the photograph is "me". but it's actually someone else. 050120

salty craker a reflection shows every imperfection. only it amplifies so you believe all can see. then you are consumed every morning by the mirror that will change your mood so technicaly you have been consumed. 050121

absinthe i used to look in the mirror and say, 'this is me. no matter if i like it or not.'
others would tell me i'm pretty sweet honest kind caring
i could never see it
because only i can see past my eyes into the hidden dark shadow depths of my mind, the others are wrong

now, i look in the mirror only to comb my hair, see if there's anything in my teeth
this is not my true face
it is nothing
random genes passed down from those who are nothing like me

fate?
