A Mere Shadow (NaPoWriMo)

A Mere Shadow
By Donna M. Monnig

I look into the mirror, reflection unclear,
I don’t know what I see.
Eyes peer, thoughts seer, distant but near,
I don’t know if it’s me.
What do I believe, what’s my mind conceive,
what do I really know?
Do my eyes send and receive or do they deceive,
am I me, or a mere shadow?
The reflection’s stare, no thoughts does it share,
Lifelike image covered in mist.
All here but not all there, unable to declare,
which one of us exists.
