on the wall

The mirror can tell you
many things
and you’ll believe them
mostly
my, how pretty you are
that shirt does not go with those pants
you disgusting fat pig
there’s a thing on your face
no, the other side
the other side
there
but the mirror won’t tell you
it can’t
tell you
the dreams that light up your night
bombastic and rolling
thundering thrill rides through fireworks and lightning
the ideas you like the best
and the ones that scare the shit out of you
the hole in your soul
that refuses to be filled by pretty
shiny things
by superficial smiles and even shallower
people
the mirror can only show
what you really
really
really
want to see…that is
if you even know
how
to ask…so
…maybe
look for that answer
instead
