    My speaking Illusion
    By Sonnet

    In my mixed emotions
    My eyesight trembled
    But the looking glass, so strong, so still
    Remained in its place.
    It laughed the movement in my face
    It wore marks made and then erased.
    By my savage hand and silly haste.
    Indeed I hold a lack of taste.
    When I stand before a false perfection
    A false perfection, that I cannot embrace.
