    A Lilly for a Lover?

    A Lilly which was never given, a glance at a 2nd chance, so causally disregarded
    I am still a loser, but what more could I ever be?
    And I wonder ...
    What must the mirror think of me?
    It sees me in reverse. Tinted, tainted, and so transversed
    With faint distortions, my pretensions, little imperfections, false introspection, and those inner fears
    Those thoughts, which I dare not ever voice aloud. and yet, somehow
    It shows me all the same...

    I guess it must be a poor judge of character
    Or is that just me?
    So perfectly reflected, with a clockwork inversion, to make the Swiss craftsman ever so jealous

    Here I am, the latest revision, of the current version, up-to-date, 2nd rate, on a one day only sale.
    This one no worse, nor at all better then all those which came before

    It's just another guise, a cheaply made smiling and wishful disguise

    Because the mirror would not wish, nor ever be able
    To understand
    All that which resides on the inside

    And still, no Lilly have I given.

    I like your poem. How it "reflects" on self-reflection, how others might see us, the inside vs outside. Nicely done!

    Just to remind you, though: No one is perfect and you don't have to be perfect to give or receive love and friendship. You are as deserving of those as anyone else. :)
