What Know One Knows - The Way My Reflection Lies

4 years ago

Me & My Reflection

She is the life of the party.  I wonder if they know she goes home and cries.  He is the most successful salesperson in the company.  I wonder if they know that he questions if everything he sacrificed was worth it.   Her sister thought she hated her, and that was why her bedroom door was locked for all those years.  I wonder if she'll ever know that her sister wished she would have broken down the door.  He cries when he rides his motorcycle because the helmet and the wind hide the tears.  I wonder if his friends know how she broke his heart.  She is the most beautiful woman in the room and all eyes are on her.  I wonder if they know she has anorexia.  

I wonder why she feels alone, when I am a reflection of her.

"As if she was on fire from within ... the moon lives in the lining of her skin." Pablo Neruda

"No matter how plain a woman may be, if truth and honesty are written across her face, she will be beautiful."  Eleanor Roosevelt

Do you see her?  Can you reach him?   Today, allow your soul to speak the truth
