Reality Itself

By Oliver Plaice, www.PoetryPoem.com/oliverspoems    Unlock all Features - Upgrade to Poetry Prime

  There's a reflection coming back to me

  but I don't recognize the image so well
  a face is laughing and smiling out there

  but somehow it seems quite different...

  As I sit here looking out through the gate, this

  plate glass picture frame unfolds before me

  into a world where there are wonderful things

  unfortunately I'm the only one who is missing -

  Is this a reality I see before me

  or just my guilty conscious eating away at me

  making these things appear before my eyes

  I sit alone here watching and waiting...

  Nothing changes, nothing exceeds or extracts

  from the reality of truth in this life

  I ask my self what is reality, is it just a reflection

  of one's self looking through that window of life?
