A mirror image of who he once was~#Decemberwriting #poetry #themagicshop

He stops by that place again

The pretending past

Smiles during misery

His reality skewed to her liking

Slob unfit for supper

Failure as father

A giant of a man reduced to crumbs

Just how she wanted him

Those days, her thoughts

He believed it daily

Questioning nothing vomited on him

Accepting this as the suburban normal

The mirrors reminded him

A definition of failure echoed back

Pathetic perceptions that exist no more

His path today reflects merely the scars of a survivor

An image of worth that he now creates to replace who he once was
