Mirrors

I looked into the mirrors
Of your eyes
And saw myself
Looking back at me.
Though the reflection
Seemed not like the me
I thought I was.
?
Perhaps it may be
The image of me
That others see.

HelmutB to RobertB perhaps what you have seen was me
Very intriguing poem you did, nice and has some way to make me think
Thanks B

 The ability to describe life with words is similar to painting a picture; both can be powerful tools.

We always wonder how we look in someone else's eyes.

Balladeer stole the words right from my mouth...or is it fingers in this case  

 I can live with the idea
That we are merely actors
Playing a part
But I do wish
Whoever is writing my script
Would learn to use
A few more Happy Endings

I guess we all look different than we think we do. Great poem, Robert! You always manage to say so much with so few words!

Good poem...we all see each other differently, depending on what we expect I think...

Brilliantly and simply done.

Robert, another simple yet astute piece of work. I like this! The image that others see...neat reflective poem.

we all look in the mirror and see a totally different person than what others see. The mirror is all backwards.
