Poetry-Flashback Friday: Reflexion

Digging into my archives once again, I unearthed another poem that I actually don’t totally hate (the other, “A History of Pebbles,” you can find here. I wrote this in the fall of 2008 after I had graduated from college and was trying to figure out what the hell I was going to do with my life. I was going through a lot of crappy “family drama” (which is totes the best kind of drama! #SideEye) and just in a really “WHO AM I” kind of phase.  Anywho …

“Reflexion”

.

Cracked down the middle

not a perfect divide

uneven, jagged, toothed

with webbed veins.

One on one side,

many on the other

identical secrets.

 .

Whole to be broken

 . 

Unhinge

Toss

Shatter

  .

Broken to be whole

  .

Can you tell the difference

Between the man

And his reflection?

Where do I stand?

Sapphire eyes expose, condemn, judge

Never seeing that the break

Wasn’t split perfectly.
