I am a writer. My passion is poetry. I feel words connect people together and help us to understand the feelings we share.

"Memories & Thoughts Reflecting From A Mirror" is an article in response to "Word Prompts Help Creativity / Week 19 ~ by Brenda Arledge. "
On this week's word prompt, "mirror", I have created 3 pieces of poetry.
"Mirror of Regret"
"The Looking Glass" ( an acrostic poem)
"Mirror of Values"
All of these poems use a reflection seen in a mirror.
"Parker McCollum ~ Pretty Heart"
Mirror of Regret
He catches his reflection
in the eyes of his latest fling,
he sees a man with a sad heart,
whose not proud of the casual games
that hold him prisoner.
He hates shattering the one
who loves him unconditionally,
murdering her heart beyond repair,
to feed his self-centered ego.
He knows it’s just a matter of time
until he sees her sorrowful image
standing in front of the mirror,
crying her eyes out.
Each time he promises
there’s no one else,
each time it rears it’s ugly head
tossing him into the throes of another woman,
breaking her into a million tiny pieces.
He’s too ashamed to ask for help,
convincing his tormented mind
this is his destiny,
sacrificing any hope for a lasting relationship
with the one he truly loves.
Don't do something today, you know you will regret tomorrow, think before you act.

"The Rebel Roads ~ First To Know"
The Looking Glass ~ an Acrostic Poem
May the looking glass
Inside your heart
Radiate a lifetime of rainbows
Reflecting precious memories
Of a romantic love
Remaining until the end of days.
Live for moments you can't put into words.
"Thank You For Being My Dad ~ by Jon Barker"
Mirror of Values
He catches a glimpse of his reflection
in the rearview mirror
as he slowly drives away from his family home.
He recalls his days as a young lad,
delivering newspapers in the wee hours of the morning
with his dad struggling to help him
before a long day’s work.
He wonders if he knows
how he thinks of him each day,
carrying his memory deep within his soul.
He hopes his father is proud
of the man he has become,
knowing he owes it all to him
for instilling those hard core values
when he was young.
Values are like fingerprints.
Nobodies are the same, but you leave them all over everything you do.
— Elvis Presley
