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 …




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






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.


What do you think of the poem?
