I never had to compete
Against closed doors and mirrors
Once you had my heart in tow
I could see you more clearer

Nightmares flood my naked mind
Down in the hole sides like glass
Reflecting her face not mine
Her narcissistic ways crashed

  1. HI Michael
    this is an intruiging poem, is the “you” in the first stanza the same as the “her” in the second?


  2. Good work! At first I was thinking it a little love poem, but now it’s just plain good!


  3. “Once you had my heart in tow,” great line, Michael. Loved it! Amy


  4. Great last stanza!! 😀
