Poem for Today Mirrors by Eric Campbell

Poem for Today Mirrors by Eric Campbell


It seems that every thought that crosses my mind

Is constructed with the same design

I hope I’m on your brain

Because you’re imprinted on mine

I can have different point of views

But with everything I do

The only point is you

I’m trapped in a room and the walls are made of mirrors…

I’ve had plenty separate visions but this is clearer

I suppose this is permanent

Now I see the light and wonder where the curtains went

And why they tried to fight

I’ve been evading this for so long

And I don’t even know why

Continuously escaping when I should’ve tried to hold on.

But instead I told lies.

I see you even when I change directions

I see you beside me in my reflection

You see me and accept my imperfections…

I want to save this image

Proof that real love doesn’t diminish

You know all of my secrets.

I won’t let this glass fall to pieces

If we ever chipped or cracked or even shattered

I’d pick up each bit real fast as they scattered

I’d accept every cut and try to put us together

I shouldn’t have rejected our forever

Kings and their men

May not be able to put it together again

But my faith, my love, and my hope can.

My name is Eric Campbell. I’m a 20 year old poet and aspiring songwriter from Queens, New York but now residing in Atlanta, Georgia. Writing is my passion I’ve been writing poetry since I was 12 years old. I’ve always wanted to be a songwriter because since I was ten years old I would listen to a song and edit it to make it flow or sound better. I strive to write things people can connect with while making sure it all comes from my heart. All forms of art interest me; I try to keep an open mind and appreciate the beauty in everything.
