Hidden Pictures

In a way
Reveal a picture
How it should be seen
How it’s truly is
The essence behind the mask
The clear lines
That shine through
Reflected like a mirror
But the opposite
The real side
Of that picture —

When we like some people
We usually like the reflection
That essence
We use to think
Reflects the essence
Of ourselves
We call it love
But what we really love
Is the imagination
Of the ego
We think
Recognises ourselves
Hidden into this relevant other —

What we love in another person
Is the imagined mirrored picture
Of ourselves —

When we love
We only look into a mirror
And think
We see us.
