unmasked

the mirror fell last night

and i could see myself again

tasting words on air unfiltered

recognizing the paths

taken

reflected in cascading facets

the mirror fell

released like skin

shed

beautiful still

as it sits empty

showcasing new skin

the mirror

revealing

beauty

unafraid of beasts

unphased

brave

Two Dots

He stands awaiting instant perfection

smiling at each passerby.

She is lost is self reflection

but stops to say hi.

Quiet speech erupts upward

laughter lifts the sky.

Shattered tears fall downward

they say goodbye.

Neither leaving nor staying

unwilling to ungrasp the high,

two circles orbiting

I think, perchance, they are just shy.
