Mirrors, Fire & Emeralds

The girl with hair of fire red

And those eyes of emerald green

It’s easy to see what she hides

To know how the past played out

Every word is written all over her face

Clear as day for all to see

Behind the fake smile she wants to be held

Told it will be okay

Given hope that she will one day be enough

Would you tell a lie to save heart from breaking again and again?

She is a reflection of my past, of my life lived by another person

The only difference is she’s the one suffering

If we had met in another time we’d both be more than the broken pieces of who we were

Would we have been the happy ending the other sought
