If God brought you to it,
He will get you through it.

Lost In Reverie

 you are
the silent witness
that tells
no lies
a mute confidante
that holds
all secrets 
behind the smile
no line or flaw
is hidden
you reveal things 
as they are
without fear
of reprisal
you bare both
beauty  and blemish
with cold neutrality
 the phantoms
crawling
in one's head
the angst and
trepidations
buried deep in
one's heart
all these chimeras
remain
clandestinely
subdued
unless the master
so exposes
and as the day dawns
when you
can no longer
hold your
silence
you shatter
into pieces
carrying with you
a thousand riddles
ensconced in
countless
glistening
shards

Bing,

Another excellent piece of writing from you!
These words I think are concerned with perhaps how we try to 'bottle things up'. Keep the struggle to ourselves, for as long as possible, until we can take no more.
Most people will have had that experience, at one time.
Best wishes,
Eileen

Beautiful vision and well penned poem

jcahrens May 6, 2011 at 1:40 AM  

I like how this poem flowed, simple statement with meaningful words to create a beautiful and very visual verse.

poetry-diary.com May 6, 2011 at 4:35 AM  

I like the way you build the tension in this poem until the mirror shatters. The form works very well too.
Thanks.

I love the vulnerability in this poem. There is such a truth and acceptance I feel in the way these insights flow, as if to admire all that is to be, being grateful for who you are as you are right now.

Hope your having a beautiful Spring.

This one hits home for me, great write! Stop in & read Decisions

It makes a mirror seem almost supernatural. Very powerful.

Maitreyee Bhattacharjee Chowdhury May 6, 2011 at 6:54 PM  

Nice flow..& rythm :)

Good choice of form for this flowing piece which captivates us. It has both depth and beauty and I like the shattered mirror.

Blessings, Iris

Wonderful poem about seeing one's doubts and fears exposed in one's reflection. The shape of your poem even resembles a long mirror that you hang on the back of a door!

Blaga May 7, 2011 at 12:32 PM  

Lovely!

Olivia May 8, 2011 at 3:13 AM  

when you
can no longer
hold your
silence
you shatter
into pieces
carrying with you
a thousand riddles
ensconced in
countless
glistening
shards..

I know this one! Ever since I have started to write again; I have been collecting those shards again in an attempt to create some art- piece. An artistic master- piece..

Many Hugs xox

Ah those little pieces of mirror...and you just reminded me...this is why i just love poetry... :) very beautiful and though provoking and above all so true :)

The Reason You Come May 8, 2011 at 6:42 PM  

The words that you used in this poem are simply exquisite!

Judy Roney May 9, 2011 at 5:34 AM  

Wow, wonderful thoughts that are unique and true about mirrors. Love the photo, too. I am upset with what my mirror says to me but I know..it's apathetic. :)

Very intriguing poem. Few people see us as we truly are for we really do carry a thousand riddles within us at all times. Beautiful words.

Tweety May 10, 2011 at 3:54 PM  

I nominate you pink lady...you deserve every ounce of it for this one :)

Ms. Queenly May 11, 2011 at 8:07 AM  

I felt a resonance reading this, often being accused myself of being honest with others. Very nicely written, especially with the shortness of the lines that contributes to the flow and keeps the eye moving.

Being happy doesn't mean everything's perfect. It means you decide to see beyond the imperfections.


"Count your blessings. Once you realize how valuable you are and how much you have going for you, the smiles will return, the sun will break out, the music will play, and you will finally be able to move forward to the life that God intended for you with grace, strength, courage and confidence." ~ Og Mandino


If I could wish for my life to be perfect, it would be tempting, but I would have to decline, for life would no longer teach me anything.
