Hola everyone!!

It was only yesterday that I was thinking how long it has been since I wrote something (as in a poem or a story) and I realised it has been more than a year since I wrote the last one. Flipping through one of my old books, I found a yellowish looking page from one of my notebooks where I had scribbled down a poem (if I may call it so). How I love finding such scribbles!! This was written around 2 years back during my initial poem writing days. This might as well be the very first thing I wrote, methinks. wanted to share it with you. Didn't edit a thing.


Standing in front of the mirror,
I look into the blurred image
Through my moist eyes.
Right in front of me,
Is a stranger I know not
Staring right back at me.
Wipe off those tears
In a desperate attempt
And I look again
To find myself
Unlike me anymore.
I marvel how
Loving you and not
Being loved back anymore
Has changed me inside.
The metamorphosis of my self
Has surprised me like no other.
Dear friend, I wish you well.
I say the last goodbye
As I take the other way.

I suppose you can clearly see the influence of Adele's Someone Like You ; I was addicted to it back then. Would love to know what you think of it.


  1. It's sad and feels very realistic - well written!

  2. Wow!!! Stranger in the mirror themes are always super awesome :D
    loved it!!!

    1. Thank you, Annie :P I loved that theme a lot back then :D

  3. I see the influence of someone like you, but I see a lot of unique greatness in your own words as well.

  4. mirror shows us our truest self without an iota of judgement, and its a good way of deep contemplation and wise decision is made at the end culminating into a fresh start :)

    1. yes, looking into mirrors indeed is a great way for retrospection :)

  5. The influence brought out something magical!
