Getting close assumes a different meaning, as life moves ahead.

We came close

to grow apart

as the self expanded

and selfies enticed

You cannot be better than the reflection I love. Self-love is a value pop psychologists have been dinning into me. Nobody knows the fine line between love and obsession.

Oh, why did you fail

to notice me

as you navigated

thro’ stormy waters?

Reflections do not always convey the truth. The surface matters, filters and lights matter. Distortions do happen, as do magnifications.

My ego expands

as prisms I choose

show me patterns

I can only love

  1. Oh so true! I had the same thoughts πŸ˜‰ She is so very pretty, but her actions in this image are so very off-putting and seemingly self-absorbed. I’m not much of a selfie-taker, but it really made me rethink what it looks like from the outside looking in. Wonderful as always — thank you so much for joining us again this week πŸ™‚
