poetry from another dimension

mirror mirror

objects in this mirror appear further away than they really are

there was a friend
in this life
at one time

the embodiment
of love and beauty and truth
or so
that was what played back
in these eyes

visioning possibilities
diving into a land of dreams
transparent
about faking it

me, not believing
it wasn’t
or perhaps believing
it was
realler than real

and that was cool

and as the layers peeled back
she became darker and darker

this inside became lighter and lighter
a picture of dorian gray
broadcast on the screen of a trusting mind

the movie is over
and what do i see?
beauty and truth and love
projecting in another direction

no regrets
none whatsoever
for resources
and love given
not lost

in the giving them away
they were found
not outside, but in.
