mirrors.


i looked into the mirror that night. 
just like that. 
the face hidden, nothing else but eyes.

i have beautiful eyes. 

they stared back at me. 
was i staring at them, or they staring back at me?
was it the other way round? 

i was as if in a trance.
 looking on.
like meditation.
like something beyond that.

it did not turn misty like it did before. 
i was aware of something,

 too aware to go beyond it, away from it to gain perspective maybe. 

i was struck by something i am unaware of. 
someone looked back at me, someone i did not recognize.

there was something amiss. 
something somewhere amiss.
maybe.
or maybe there has been too much that i had not kept up with. 

i was looking at me, as if i was looking at someone else. 

what does this mean anyways?

i am not making sense.

  1. and I asked it finally, 'Hello, I think I know you, you have eyes like me...I think we've met before

    And they said...
    'look closer, I am you'

  2. I think it means that there is just so much the mind wants to see and behold and perceive.

    Life is so like any other journey - from a buoying lil frantic ship on unruly waves it eventually does simmer down to a still lake, then shakes a lil sometime.

    I like this post.
