The mask, a false exterior

Hiding a delicate interior,

Fragile frames of mind

Outlined by the face

In the mirror. 


Seeming just slightly

Out of place

Yet leaving no trace, 

No mark, no sensation

Of depression or joy.

Rippling surfaces distort,

Warping the images reflected,

Revealing that better left

Buried, forgotten, disposed of.


Merge the pictures

And create something new.

Sanity is all just

A point of view.

Sanity is only a ripple on the pond of life. No one is more sane or insane than anyone else. They just show how insane they are in different ways. I'm glad that you wrote this. Thank you again for seeing something that has lead to showing something. Check back later.

Sanity is just a point of view - nice write. Muah! - I enjoy poems about mirrors and this one merges ~allets~
