I don’t really know who I am anymore since I lost my face in the mirror.
There seems to be an image resembling me, but I not sure that it is.
Features that made the outline of who I was are not as visible as before.
Perhaps the shadows that formed along the way have shaded the darkness.
Sometimes I see a refection of myself on the shiny paint on the car I drive,
I wonder if it is the person I once knew before, or if it is the person I am today.
There is no way I could be two persons at once and so I am a little confused,
And I don’t know if I hate either one of the persons that might resemble me.
When the sun is out I notice a dark shadow that seems to follow me everywhere,
I stared to see if I knew him and even though it looked familiar, I still wondered.
At times I hear myself talking to the reflections and shadows while I am alone,
There never seems like anyone is around to hear me weep or cry out loud.
As I was window shopping yesterday I saw someone starring right back at me,
He was standing right in front of me and moved with me on every step I made.
I waved at the glass and I noticed that he had the same clothing I had on,
Then I smiled and so did he as I walked away and then we both disappeared.
As it started to rain I hurried to find a place to stay dry and I came upon a tree,
Down below the branches a pond appeared and I saw the person I knew once.
His face was blurry as the raindrops fell onto the pond as I saw his glare,
When I splashed my shoe I moved the water and the image became distorted.
I walked away after the rain stopped as the wind begun to blow as I heard voices,
They whispered into my ears to look down at the formation of a colored rainbow.
It was a beautiful creation and I saw myself in living color as I starred at me,
And by the time I got home the image implanted inside my head was my shadow.

A lonely man has been suffering for a while until he ventures out to find himself. When a raindow appears his mind finds a new prospective to continue living.
