Fictional Reflection

Teary eyed when I see her cry
Even though it's simply on the screen
I feel the true story,
The true story of her life
As she cries out her tears
I know it's been done before
And it touches me,
Like a scar never before
And it holds on to me
It's not letting go
Her tears, they stain my skin
I feel it.
Somehow it mirrors my own self,
A reflection of hate and sorrow,
Shadows swarm
Engulfing me whole
Until knight in shining armour
Comes to my rescue,
Breaks me out of the mirror
Shatters the pain
The tears are replaced with a smile
Love's miracle
The girl on the screen,
No longer mirrors me.
