The Mirror Has Two Sides
There are two sides to a mirror The side you choose holds magic confirming your narcissistic nature Which loves what it sees My side is blank It’s only purpose to reflect your image out to the world I am unseen, living in your shadow Copyright © 2023 Christine Bolton - Poetry for Healing All Rights Reserved Merril is hosting Monday Quadrille at D’Verse and the prompt is ‘Mirror’
Whoooo, there’s power and penetrance in this reflection. A starting point for more ideas …
Thank you Kathy ☺️
I love the way you presents the two sided mirror.
Thank you, Bjorn. I appreciate it. ☺️💕
The air of sadness and defeat in the second verse is heartbreaking.
Thanks, Jay-lyn. Life with a narcissist must be defeating. 🥲💔
I really like that last line–lots to think about. (K)
Thank you, K. So nice of you to stop by ☺️❤️
Extremely thought provoking 🙌
Thank you so much ☺️💕
I like your perspective Christine, reflection as occupation, only we live our lives, we reflect who and what we are, the mirror is neutral, our mind and body are not.
That is so true isn’t it, Paul. Thank you as always.☺️💕
Most welcome 🙂
This is deeply thought-provoking and profound, Christine! 💖💖
Sanaa thank you so much ☺️💕
I love the message in your mirror! A beautifully penned quadrille.
Thank you so much, Helen ☺️💕
Such an interesting, thought-provoking poem. I can read it in different ways, a literal mirror and metaphorically. Thank you!
Thank you, Merril. I’m happy you liked it. ☺️💕
You’re welcome, Christine!
Ouch! To remain blank…how terrible it must be.
I like this, Christine. ❤️
Sadly, more than we can imagine Punam 🥲 💔
All of us maintain the underside of the mirror. It may hide many secrets which may be seen as and when allowed to. Should be interesting to know Christine!
Thank you Hank. It would indeed! ☺️💕
A profound poem Christine

Powerful poem, especially for me as a survivor of domestic violence.
Yes Regina. I hope I didn’t jar any bad memories. 💕
I like the spooky vibe of this. The underside of the mirror, could be the next great evil nemesis.
Oh yes great idea and you could weave that story into a bestseller K 😊👍❤️
How profound. That poor mirror. I’m sure there are many people who resonate with this unseen side.
Yes Melissa, I agree 😢💔
