    I wrote this in half an hour and haven't written anything in ages so it's a bit crappy.

    I am the Mirror Man
    Mere reflection of you
    You may think you know me
    You don't, never could
    There's no story to tell
    That's not yours just reworked
    Face and name differs
    Upon change of scene
    No real thought or emotion
    Just glamour and sheen
    Perverse dreams played out
    On a stage shadowed by yours
    But I can be anyone you want me to be.
    Just don't break the mirror
    You wont like what you see
    A dark cave, bleeding walls,
    Vomit and pus
    Crouched in the corner of this stinking retreat
    A pathetic foul creature
    A cowering beast
    Flea-ridden hair
    And skin grey with dirt
    Eye sockets bloody where fingers have sunk
    Soulless and voiceless
    No life of it's own
    It hides in the dark
    Never shown to anyone.
    Aren't you glad that I warned you?
    Aren't you content now you see
    To let me be your mirror man
    It's best this way
    So I'm told.

    It's a very sad poem mal. I'm sorry(if I'm correct) that you view yourself as that way or that you let others see only what you want. You are not a bad person. We've had our fights but from one person to another you are a good soul. You just have to eventually see it to believe it. Still a very good poem.

    Thank you Kelly, it means a lot that someone would say that about me. And yeah, you're correct about the meaning, glad you think it's a good poem though.

    And thanks Lynn, glad you liked it
