The Final Note, #NapoWrimo23, Prompt 23, Mirror


mirror

Beauty, glamour and limitless hope,

The ceiling, stool and slender rope

Everything is draining down

You are staring with a frown.

 

Beauty, glamour and limitless hope,

Taking them to peak through the slope

Who gave you the power, the right?

To decide the colour, black & white…

 

You are staring like the big brother,

Disturbing my night’s sleep

Upsetting my mind’s peace

Because you care about beauty, glamour and hope.

 

I see a man with bruises and blemishes,

I see a man with a patchy beard

I see a bard, hopeless and weird

Because you care about beauty, glamour and hope.

 

I see a man with a broken soul

Foul is fair, the fair is foul

I see a man looking for a muse

I see a man who wants to be a recluse.

 

I see a  dark face on the surface

I see a criminal, unable to confess

Yes, I have tightened the rope

But, all you care about beauty, glamour and hope

 

Don’t act like, you know everything,

Don’t act like, you have seen everything

Don’t act like; you are the master of everything

Don’t act like, you are everything.

 

My insecurities will scare you

My pointed beard will poke you

My ugly face will question you

And my eyes will haunt you…
