Let Me Be Your Mirror


Let me tell a tale of mortality,
Unveil the marks of your immorality.
Let you see every line, every crease,
How a delicate skin decrease,
In this battle of virtue and sin.
But …
I will watch your back, hold your stare
Much longer than a best friend would

I have no lies of my own; I could be what you would –
Yes, I have no motion but yours will do,
And I could even live your emotion
…just to please you

But I know a feigned smile
And I could learn you a new charm,
Give you a stage if you want to dream
For you live in a world of much harm.
Let me be your mirror, intricate and plain
Untainted by time.
