Day 3 Poem: A Mirror Image

Today's poem is inspired by the OctPoWriMo blog post from yesterday.  I decided to ask a question and see what I wrote. Here's what came from the tip of my pen.

A Mirror Image 

It's hard for a shy person
to like another shy person.
Hello get stuck in the throat,
and eyes twirl in a windward,
never settling on their mark.
Earphone in ear say don't talk to me,
Eyes glued on sceen say you are not important.
A mirror image
Earphone in my ears, but I want to talk,
Eyes glued on my computer screen but... can we be friends?
A sneaky thought cross my mind
"Give up the ghost on this one already,
you tried to talk to him and understood not a word.
Your worst nightmare, isn't it
Girl with hearing loss?
Another voice come to mind, small and gentle,
"You are mine,
you moved at my command,
you talked at my command
Now trust Me, I am I Am its clay in My Hands.
Once again a thought sneak in "Maybe he has a girlfriend,"
"Clay" came a whisper.
Inspired also by Jeremiah 18:1-6

  1. As a shy person myself, I like this. I can't quite put my finger on why, but I definitely like it.
