Weds poetry prompt: Deceptive Reflections


(A little bit delayed this week, apologies!)

This week’s prompt: Write a ‘reflection’ poem.

Deceptive Reflections

I wake up and wonder
‘What am I doing here?’
After a fitful half-slumber,
An answer not readily clear.

I rummage in my restless mind
For any reason I can find
But get lost in the past instead,
Unearthing events best left behind.

I reflect on forgotten days,
But through a broken mirror
That taints the memory’s gaze
And convinces me I am inferior.

I force myself to fight these cracks
And recover the rational image
That will set me back on track
To find answers I can faintly envisage.
