You Are My Looking Glass

courtesy : google image

You are my looking glass

I view myself on your visage

I am happy when you smile

And your sadness is mine

When you stand like a rock

Against the stormy sea

My tender mass hardens

I become a rock like you

We both sustain on each other

Till- THAT- do us part

  1. being the rock for each other in the hard times....that is a blessing...the last line is a bit of caution to me. because taking on too much the feeling of others can destroy those rocks over time...

  2. Yes, that last is a game changer after all of the first. If it is our own, it is the last reflection of all. She who mirrors is also mirrored, though, and at times it is difficult to know who initiates, isn't it? A somber, brilliant wisdom poem with a startling end. Thank you.

  3. Sumana, most of your poem speaks of the wonderful relationship that you had; and the last line is heartbreaking...but oh, so real.

  8. The mirror can be both an enemy and a friend. In both cases it will tell the truth.

  9. Well, I guess if we only lean on our own image, something is bound to shatter, and we must part ways. Interesting write Sumana.

  17. Good to have a trusted friend like that in life... one who gives back the reflection that one would want to see!!
    Wonderfully penned, Sumana!

  18. Sumana,

    I suppose we are both good friend and foe to our own selves, when viewed in the mirror. No-one can really change our opinion, once we have fixed upon our own gaze..

  19. That is so true of a loving life partner. I don't know how people make a go of living life, alone. It must be much, much harder with no one there to cushion the mental anguish of those inevitable dark days.
