Who Am I?

Posted by butterflyWings2 , 02 May 2014 · 43 views


Who am I

when I look in the mirror
I wonder if you see what I see
loneliness behind empty smile
one that has been hurt so many times
sitting in waiting
for the next mirage to fade
into the shadows behind chestnut eyes
glazed by pain and self doubt
hollow words and broken promises
bring little refuge to a woman
whose childhood was ripped away
before it even started
the burial place of memories
nothing more then a hiding place
where pain has always d'welled
and tears always wel'd in private
there is no such word in my mind
for two many have walked there
leaving foot prints on the heart
and hand prints on the memory
in the wee hours of the morning
when the mind cannot be still'd
to the floor I crumble
and only the mirror
knows who I am...
