The Mirror

We look in the mirror together
Side by side.
Why do you not see
the person I see next to me?
Perhaps you look at my reflection
and ask the same

It's interesting to think about what we see in others and what they might see in us. I have always enjoyed trying to get people to realize they are better than they give themselves credit for being. And I have been humbled at times by what people say they see in me.

Self image can be decieving not only to those trying to understand it from the outside, but also to someone trying to explain it to a loved one. You see something average or mundane in all the places that your lover sees amazement, beauty, or wonder. A lover finds sex appeal and attraction to the very things that you feel are faults in yourself. On the same hand, you are drawn to a lover's faults in the same fashion.

The mirror reflects the image of both of you staring in curiosity at one another, wondering how each other can misunderstand the other point of view...

Amazing poem, great insight, wonderful words, my only question would be ...

Do you believe them?

I don't see what you see because I hide it so well. You thought I was normal? HA! You've got no idea!!
