Mirror mirror on the wall

Day 26, OctPoWriMo-2015



A transparent cycle of memories

Flash against the pillars

Memories of a lost time

Pillars of a past life

Time seeped in images

Life interlaced in whorls

Images of a youthful bliss

Whorls of lush fields

Bliss surrounding the sandy dunes

Fields of swaying laughter

Dunes of mud huts

Laughter danced within their walls

Huts cocooned with warmth.

Walls now shadow the soul

Warmth caged in a concrete foil

Soul trapped in an appearance

Foil of grace and perfection

Appearance of a role model

Perfection faked for the mirrored wall.

    " Walls now shadows the soul
    Warmth caged in a concrete foil
    Soul trapped in an appearance
    Foil of grace and perfection "
