This Reflection

You see, you see mereflection
as a smudged copy
or perhaps a future state.
Either way, I am not present.

I exist only
in the bright of your eye
or the hope of your heart.
Truth told, I am not here.

I envy this reflection
her company sought,
her words savored.
So sad, I am not her.

You see, you’ll see
the tarnish on the shine,
the polish is past.
Right now, I am not new.
