Two-Way Mirror

I see what's inside you
Kaleidoscope boy,
Clad in black.
Inside you, colors swirl
In complex shapes and patterns;
And deep within the colors
Lies the void
A yawning and empty space
That longs to be filled
Its shape a puzzle
That few understand
And fewer can fit.
I see you,
As if I peer through
A two-way mirror,
A ghostly image of myself
Superimposed
Over what is beyond;
I see you
and I see me,
For I am the same.
So, know you're not alone
I'm just here
On the other side
Of impenetrable glass.

Nicely done, Nancy.

A great imagination. The boy in the poem would fare well from knowing there is someone who understands him

We are often attracted to others by what we see in ourselves I think. I enjoyed this. Not many kaleidoscope boys around these days.
