I Am The Mirror

…empty without you

We explore reflections
without knowing
what they mean
and when detected
they are sometimes
still unseen

captured deeply within
between the mind
and the heart
do you hear me?
do you hear me
calling your name
from where you are most
afraid to look?

I will take your hand
and become your mirror
an unflinching gaze
between the unseen dreams
and the cloudy images
of what might have been

in the texture of times’ etchings
I see you move back into place
duality seals our destiny
the ripples that you make
our surfacing inner tides
shift and change my life

you see the same as I
tell me your secrets
show me your soul
I will give back to you
what you evoke in me
there are no illusions here

for I am the mirror
empty without you
