Mirror, Mirror

One overcast morning, I stood across the wall from where the mirror stood. Looking at the guy reflected on its surface, I asked him do I look gwapo. With a face looking like it just came from the battlefield - shabby hair, oily skin, and with gaundy eyes making pa-kyut in front of the mirror, The man obviously didn't speak. Instead, he just stared back without saying a word. Disappointed, I went back to my room and cam-whored using my phone until I was satisfied with the photos I took.

On some rare ocassions, the guy in the mirror do acknowledge my presence. Just like this night, while mom was glued on her favorite Kapamilya teleserye I stood across the wall to ask again the age-old question.

"Do I look good?" I inquired. No word came back.

Just when I was about to leave, I heard a voice speaking. Finally, the elusive self granted me an audience.

"I find your broad shoulders hot, and so is your new haircut." He said. In my head, of course.

"Now stop bugging me. It's not so you to ask this silly question."

I left the spot, happy with the mirror's reply.

your beauty exudes beyond what you can offer to other people's eyes

your beauty is skin deep...

thus your beauty shines from your good heart

Period: Ikaw naman, masyado mo sineseryoso tong entry na to. Minsan na nga lang ako maging kuwela eh.

Dahil heavy ang mga susunod na entry.

Unknown Danger: Hindi ako nagpasemikal. So... Hindi yun pogi points para sa iyo.

Knox Galen said...

Peeetah: Pagupit ka rin, para makalimutan mo na heartbroken ka. :)

MkSurf8: Puwedeng ako na lang ang lalaki sa salamin? Pramis, matutuwa ka sa sasabihin ko.

Engel: I'm a little dangerous when I'm confident, that's why I have to remind myself to keep a modest attitude towards my looks.

Knox Galen said...

Mr. Scheez: Huwag ka, kung puwede ko lang i-clone ang sarili ko, tagal ko nang ginawa. Hahaha.

Mikel: Thanks dude. Glad I found your blog again.

Ewik: At least ang mirror hindi nirurub ang ego ko. Considerate lang siya sa mga gusto kong marinig.

Knox Galen said...

Xtian: Tao lang. Naghahanap rin ako ng vindication sa sarili. :P

Dagger Deeds: I'm more of a hunky diva. Nyahahaha.
