-Delta Goodrem-


Mirror, my mirror, you stole my heart and eyes
You do have my all, except for my voice
You make my heart throb millions in size 
 
Our love is a story; Your image is my glory
You make me feel as cherubic as a cory
Tell me how I look tonight, as fair as ivory?
 
You and me, in an arcane orchard, by the coast,
where our souls are unwoven, we shall raise a toast
I shall eternally dote on you the most
 
You are my snow on a summer day like a dove
Your panache bought me boutonnières from above
You're me, I'm you, darling, whom I shall only love 

At last, they see the flip of a coin, one side whole, the other destroyed
The mirror I loved is cracked and shattered
my mind is corrupt and hope is gone

I flip and flip yet only get burned
Is that what we amount to?
the chance we fall,
live with love no more,

Blacker than the darkest sea,
nights so bleak 
my heart feels weak

and so I turn to walk alone
flip my coin with an anger-filled tone
as the doves have died 
and I died with them

No matter the day I live with my hate, I blame you, I blame you
I blame you for breaking my light and leaving me in the snowless night

I wrote this poem together with TheRareBreed who is a user of TeenInk. He is a really cooperative Person and I enjoyed collaborating with him. Below is his user account of TeenInk. Please check it out.

I pay my gratitude for his attitude to the multitude.

I personally dedicate this poem to my Maternal family members, and especially to Dad and Mom. I also dedicate this to TheRareBreed's family and friends. Finally yet importantly, I dedicate this poem to all the readers of Teen Ink.

“The apple doesn't fall far from the tree." I guess that means we're just products of whoever made us and we don't have much control. The thing is, when people use that phrase, they ignore the most critical part: the falling. Within the logic of that saying, the apple falls every single time. Not falling isn't an option. So, if the apple has to fall, the most important question in my mind is what happens to it upon hitting the ground? Does it touch down with barely a scratch? Or does it smash on impact? Two vastly different fates. When you think about it, who cares about its proximity to the tree or what type of tree spawned it? What really makes all the difference, then, is how we land.”
― Val Emmich, Dear Evan Hansen

@Afra, It was such a joy to work with you on this project. You truly embody the flip side of my coin. I hope one day I can find it in myself to rebuild enough to have such love once again.

Yours in Madness, TheRareBreed

Seems like a sad poem, but lots of cool vocabulary--I'd never heard of some of those words. I'm so glad to have my poem "The Tree" published. Maybe you could check that one out?
