I'm Back

by krys123

Image result for picture of a negatively mirrored self

This mirror
Brought happiness
for wives
Children
Many friends
And
Especially
Now
It's clear
That now
It
Shines of sunlight
Sparkling bright
But
My reflection

Dims the surface
With grayness
That's

Unmoving
With

Still loneliness
That
Clouds the surface

Casting shadows
That walk alone
Without
Memories

Of my youth
That's grown
Tired
But

Brings an age
That comes
From Autumn

And with winter's
Cold, cold wind
That blows 
A deafening sound
Of a secret
Silence
That suffocates
My mind
From 

Not being heard
Nor seen
Nor smelled
But felt
By the present
Lack

Of love
For
Myself 
Until
Now
I'm 
Back
In
Love!
