Through the Looking Glass

“Reflections Down East” – Bailey Island, ME – Photo by gfs
When was the last time
The mirror spoke the truth
Quicksilver satin lines
In shallow dimensions
A cloud of unkwowning
Sinking beneath the tides
Simple seasons seem
to tell us of our fate
Sight unseen to eyes
Journeys through the looking glass
Let her heart believe
the lies she comes to know;

There is only make-believe
within the light of day
The circles ever round about
Where hearts come out
to play
Only essence still (in time)
Takes the sinner home
Lost in some embarrassment
as if we may have known

There is no other way to keep
the truth
Of some forever (never been)
The sacred trust forgotten with
the world within this dream

Take my heart for it is yours
My days are not my own
The light surrounds this side
of heaven
Where destiny as falling waters
sealed the words
forever writ into the stone
