reflections of a farsighted view
gazing into a looking glass world
we are mere illusions
magical creations of grandeur
in our own shrivelled minds

close or faded
we become shimmers of light
in a mirrored reflection of our soul
neither living nor dead
elusive wisps
of flickering prismatic color
life in a moving picture
not real or solid
neither being able to be held
or counted
unreal as a shadow on the wall

than to be crowded on a velvet cushion."

Oooohh, quite excellent. You make great use of metaphors and imagery. I especially liked:

"elusive wisps
of flickering prismatic color"
