Mirrors of fire

How can there be
such a crushing sense of loss
for something I never had
the right to something I cannot own
the illusion of being someone
I was so certain I was
a comforting delusion so dear
to the heart
shall I start right away creating
another fond image of who I could be
how long before it too blows up
in a fiery blaze
I know somewhere within me
lives a loving and wise person
when that voice speaks
how will I know it is mine
I am haunted by mirrors of fire
