Poem: Hall of Mirrors

Hall of Mirrors

Multitude of direction
Many luring paths
Each road offering mixed truths
As hope breaks swiftly
Banging into false windows
Showing what seemed real
Nothing more then wounded pride
Conquered yet again

I found you through blogrush. I too am a poet, though of a very different nature. I write inspired by topics in the news, nature and my world. I hope you will stop by and partake of some of my creations. I enjoyed my visit and will add you to a poet's ring.

P.S. I have 4 cats. Noticed you like acoustic guitar/song-writers. Have you seen "Once"? Check out the You Tube spot midway down my blog.

Kathleen,
Thanx for popping in and reading. I, too, write about current news topics, nature and, well, you name it! Take a look at my link list and I bet you will find something along all those lines.
"Falling Softly" is a wonderful song. I want to see the movie, but have not yet. I will eventually.

The movie "Once" is brilliant. I'm of Irish descent and it really struck a chord (so to speak). The song the girl sings is also wonderful. See the movie as soon as you can. "Falling Slowly" is up for an Oscar.
Check out my archive list for a slew of animal poems - a few good cat ones. I commented on your photo of "Boo". Glad we've "met" - I think we could be kindred spirits.

I am going to rent it for over the weekend. You were my kick in the pants!

I will browse around your site when I have more time. I promise.

Kindred spirits are a great thing in my book!

Commented on your GB is an asshole poem from 2005. Great!

Thank you for all the comments!! Yes, I just read that comment. I can tell where they come from because blogger's comments direct you to the original post.

I liked it; it oddly gave me thoughts about running into clear sliding glass doors for some odd reason.

Oh, those hopes like birds that hurt themselves on windows! Know the feeling, Scott.

This is for you:

Noah,
I don't recommend that. It hurts one's nose a lot!
