With and Without You

A Poem

My reflection deceives me. 
I am not the happy woman in the glass.
I am not vibrant and warm. 
I do not smile like the sun. 
My reflection lies. 

My thoughts consume me. 
Why can I not find happiness? 
Where has my light gone?
Why do I cry like the rain? 

My voice fails me. 
I have no words to speak. 
I have no comfort to give. 
I have nothing to convey. 

My soul craves you. 
You are the happiness I have lost. 
You are the light in my dark. 
You are the comfort I seek. 

Without you, I am an oil painting. 
With you, I am a mirror to your heart.
