I look in the mirror and do not know her.
This woman starring back at me. Who is she?
Where did all those lines come from?
Features completely foreign…
I search for explanation.
Answers swimming in a sea of silver…
Revelations in the reflection…
Facts and figures float just beneath the surface…
of the glass.
Between the lines there is a story.
Some of the parts are good. Some of them are sad.
Some of them are silly. And a few of them are mad.
All of them are worthy
of being written down…
to be always recorded
before I’m all curled up and brown.
Where once there was a twinkle…
now emptiness prevails.
It wasn’t always like this…
but the colors now are pale.

Very well written. That wasn’t a very long respite. You must have missed us. Hope you are well. 🙂
Thanks Linda. I DO miss you guys and the blogosphere! But I guess I’m still technically taking a break from regular posting. I just saw something last night on TV that inspired these words, so… I couldn’t help it. 🙂 I will be seeing you again soon! I hope you are well. Thanks for being such a faithful visitor and commentor 😉
Hey there, glad to see you are facing this blog addiction 😀
I know the stories between the lines. Beautifully written and I love you. (mom) I wouldn’t want anyone to think I was a stalker. :O)
I’m looking at the cheerful pretty girl beneath the word Author, and I’m happy to say that nothing in the poem seems like her. Good poem though, even if its kinda pessimistic.
Awww… thank you so much. I know it’s definitely a negative angle… but it is really just about those times when things are dark. I suppose I think sometimes those strong emotions help us to create so I explore them through writing… the good, the bad and the UGLY! 😛
Just read, “My Daily Thrisis.” I spend a lot of time in front of the computer, and you know what helps me out: and it’s advice right straight from Bil Nye the Science Guy, so you can’t go wrong there. What you do is this: every twenty minutes take a break and look at something twenty feet away for twenty-seconds. I’ve been doing that, and it really does help prevent the computer vision syndrom.
I know that feeling!
