Mirror #1 (Reflections)

Usually when I look at you, I see myself:
reclusive, prodding, often sleepy
and usually when I think of you
I think of how my left is your right
how we have the same background
and even our blinking comes entwined

but then I looked at you recently and
I only peeked, returning my gaze
to the object in my hand (also a mirror)
but in place of my features were
dozens of letters trying to woo me
unlike you, one who only stares

No, I don’t think it captures me
half so well as you, but at least
there’s someone else on the other end
pining, while in your case
you just keep smiling until the moment
I have to I leave.
