A look in the mirror

A look in a mirror
myself caught In between
eyes staring sadly back at me

here I am , in reflection
here I am lost inside myself
feeling like a cloudy dream is living inside of me
a dream

reality is , I am me , I am real
reflection confusing my wandering searching eyes
because I donít see me

stranger in the accepting mirror
stranger looking back at me
sheís there , Iím here
almost like a cloud catching a mirror
and questions
who is this
I see white wisps
but I donít understand
I see blue all around
and I donít understand
surely I should understand the me caught in the mirror
I should understand but I donít

the white wisps feel like another cloud
she looks sad and sheís searching
to link arms with me
so the connection is understood

I want to look in the mirror , always and feel the connection
feel the link to the girl
staring back at me
but she looks so very distant

I donít always like the mirror
when I feel a disconnect
because I can see the sad distance and it makes me want to turn away

I feel it anyway
the sense of disconnect
do always want to see it staring back at me

a girl lost inside herself yet on some level
she knows herself very well
