Smoke & Mirrors

Although we see with our eyes
often we refuse to see that which
doesn’t please
But mirrors never lie
no, mirrors never lie.

A heart of glass
shattered from the resonance
of silence
created a thousand pieces
message in each shape
crystal clear
yes crystal clear
and, each piece cuts as clean.

A soul reached through a
fog of smoke and mirrors
to touch another who
wasn’t in the same place
sometimes trust has to fly
yes, trust has to fly on, with
broken wings.

Not too sure I did this right, the prompt was about repetition with words or lines.
Hope it fits the prompt. It isn’t about any person or any one thing in particular, just some jumbled thoughts.

  1. so true, so so so true 😦 awesome imagery D. each broken piece a message, yet no one heeds to them, and that last line, just awesome!!!

  2. I think your repetition works very well emphasizing your main points with just the right emphasis…
    i love the trust flying line too!

  3. Trust can be very fickle indeed, sometimes just have to take a leap, but if the wings are too broken the fall may not be all that great..haha

  4. mirrors never lie indeed, no matter how we shut our eyes. The repeated words are very effective, and fit the prompt fine. The fun part about repetition is there are so many ways to utilize it. Enjoyed this much.

  5. sometimes trust must fly on broken wings…what a lovely line and so true…

    sorry, your site is stillgiving my computer fits…and your captcha code kicks me out more than it takes…

  6. I like this very much, Daydreamer. Yes, sometimes trust has to fly on broken wings…and we must hope for the best. The repetition worked very well to bring home your message in this poem.
