Sparks of Words

sparks fly
hitting everything
as if everything
wasn’t there

words bounce
inside a head
as if it mattered
what one mind
had to say

a mirror reflects
an image of you
of everyone around

do you see
what others see
in you
like you see
in them

bet you don’t see
what everyone sees in you
because you’re just like them
when it comes
to the minds of others
to those thoughts and opinions
spoke by a voice
other than your own

sparks fly
hitting everything
as if everything
wasn’t there

words bounce
inside a head
as if it mattered
what one mind
had to say

and the mirror reflects
the pain you are in
listening to others words
