A mirror is a liar too

~{}~

How can I see myself in you

When you reflect my pain but not my soul

Am I to play another part or role

Than to be myself and true?

.

What can reflections really do

But show the outside of the complex whole

And not the depth, the relief that you stole

A mirror is a liar too

.

There might be more than what you see

So much is covered by what was

Not to be shown by just some glass

.

Reflections don’t show the real me

So let this vanity just pass

As you are not my looking-glass

 Petrarchan sonnet

today I learned about tercets (from a comment) and from there I googled my way to the Petrarchan sonnet
