Poetry and prose from the heart. · Stories to ponder.

The reflection.

“The course of true love never did run smooth.”  ~ William Shakespeare, ‘A Midsummer Night’s Dream.’


“So it’s true, when all is said and done, grief is the price we pay for love.”  ~ E.A. Bucchianeri; novelist.


 

The reflection

I was seeing myself in the reflection,
The world in me was full of tension;
Violence and arguments in constant display,
The outer world’s madness night and day.

Thoughts of anger threatened my sanity,
Beauty and obsession were sheer vanity;
Depression, people’s demands were upon me,
Worries of the future did not let myself be.

Love was a thing I never knew, never understood,
But beyond my self-pity my heart told me I should;
Experiences I had allowed to keep me down,
Past memories and rejections had me bound.

I had neglected you as a friend but you remained,
Your beauty, personality with my anger had stained;
Many moments I had hated myself in my own lunacy,
Poison in my blood was affecting my heart brutally.

One day tears of deep expression in your eyes,
They made me turn and see through my own lies;
There was absolute truth and divinity in your soul,
There was immediate light and truth as my goal.

I sensed my world moving forward into the light,
Not anymore held I society and man to that height;
Love was a new horizon in my life, now bells rang,
You made my reflection beautiful, now angels sang.

~ Asa Rodriguez.
