Mirror

There’s a ghost in the mirror
Someone you may not see
But she’s there every time I look
Staring back at me
An empty image
Hiding behind the looking glass
A darkened glimmer of an afterthought
A memory that has passed
The light within her dims
And the darkness begins to grow
As the ghost inside the mirror fades
My reflection starts to show

Puzzle

Peering into the broken mirror
Absorbing all that I have seen
Putting it back together piece by broken piece
Until all is reassembled
Leaving behind only these lonely pieces of me
The shards that crumble in my hand
Are all that now remain
Like a puzzle missing pieces
I am unfinished once again
