I gaze into its depths in hopes of a different truth
to fill the cracks that splinter across my eyes.
I can’t make heads or tails about what lies beneath;
all I see are fragmented facts scribbled on the glass.

Bits and pieces of me scatter across the floor;
the threads between them cut and gone,
leaving me bare naked with nowhere to hide.
I stare at the imprint of myself,
and all the sins within come to the forefront.

I fall, shaking to the ground, 
trying to gain my bearings against the rising tide.
Such a pity I could not gain ground in such a bitter storm,
and I have to wonder who is really to blame.
Mirrors are great because they are so unbiased. They show you what is what isn't, it is up to you to interpret it however you feel necessary.

No twisted mirror from me for this one, but I did enjoy it... to my literature collection it goes.

"nowhere no hide" should be "nowhere to hide", unless you did this intentionally. Really beautiful poem though.
