Reflect… By Toni L.A. Cross

This glass is cracked
My view is shattered
Like an old store front
On the bad side of town

Reflect these faces back
In defined color
Remove the smear
Of hate
Make the shadows
Melt and fade and flee
Take away the irresolution
Created by a single doubt

This heart is cracked
My love is shattered
Like fine china dropped
On the unyielding concrete

Reflect my world back
In black and white
Remove the distortion
Of emotion
Make the lines
Stark and crisp and clear
Take away the blur
Created by a single tear

My name is Toni and I was raised on a farm in the far north of the United States. I love to read and write and I hope to use those hobbies in a greater way in the days to come. One of my passions is using whatever influence I have to make a difference in the world.

    Toni as I read this I thought about the song ‘A Whiter Shade of Pale’…that had the lines “as the miller told his tale that her face, at first just ghostly, turned a whiter shade of pale
    She said, ‘There is no reason and the truth is plain to see.'” Strange what get’s triggered in the mind sometimes. 😉
