When I started this poem, I simply wanted to write a love poem. I reflected on what stands out in my relationship and the first thing I thought was that my boyfriend always knows the perfect things to say when I’m hurting. I know, cliché . But, it’s sincerely true. So, I tried to find a more beautiful way to communicate that quality. I love the metaphor of a shattered mirror being filled in with his perfect words until the mirror is whole again and reflecting properly. What are your thoughts?
