“At one magical instant in your early childhood, the page of a book—that string of confused, alien ciphers—shivered into meaning. Words spoke to you, gave up their secrets; at that moment, whole universes opened. You became, irrevocably, a reader.” –Alberto Manguel

Mirrors

"Mirrors don't lie, they reflect what they see. They are balanced equation, as they receive to give. But what if mirrors lie, manipulate the outcome and satisfy the master. Lies heal sometimes, assumptions give courage and reflections sometimes perfectly destroy the expectations. We look for what we want to see, and what if mirrors show exactly what we want to see, superimpose the flaws to strengthen the belief that flaws are beauty marks? Could there ever be a magic mirror that could satisfy the profound hunger of narcissism? May be, may be in somebody's eyes."























There's a tornado of scars in my chest;
growing big every inch as time passes by,
by the time agony comes to rest;
it’s gonna be the time for final goodbye.

Time is a misleading thing to measure;
expectations still feel like French wine,
what are we left with to treasure;
when you hear your flaws from grapevine.

With the facts that I knew;
dared to have a look yet refrain,
mirrors heal and hurt too;
with a handful of feelings, so profane.

To find a mirror that satisfies;
ages passed but I still believe,
I shall find in those deep eyes;
that don't know how to grieve.

Magic exists they say;
only if you wish to see,
well I longed for it every day;
un-witnessed, prolonged it could be.

With the facts untrue;
against my wish I'd find,
mirrors heal and hurt too;
if they can't see, they're blind.
