a perfect moment.
you give a wink-
a smirk, a smile.
a sinister look,
and you stare back.
that’s a mirror.
no man’s an island,
but wouldn’t it be nice to
shut the noise outside.

Is that what you see when your gaze reflects back at thee? Word.
Mine deflects and repels. Antithesis. What is the opposite of narcissism?
At this point in my life, yes. Does it mean I see perfection, no. But for sure have a much better self image then say when I was 15 or even in my 20s, which I was when I wrote the poem. The point is I’m much happier with myself, but to certain degree the poem was more about Narcissus, the mythological character, than about myself.
Very nice work!!
Thank you so much for the support.
