Sorry if the title is better than the work? At least I got a new story idea out of the poem...

Narcissus Draped in Silver #bigcolor

A silver-backed screen feeding me lies
As I peer into it
With my blue-lit eyes.
 
What is human, if brains don’t suffice?
It must not be bodies,
For flesh is not so precise
 
Compared to my oiled steel fingers
And digitized heart;
Immune to that feeling which lingers.
 
I must have forgotten the word,
Lost in my argent screen,
Yet all emotions have been blurred.
 
Truth be told, this screen holds secrets
Untold to and by me,
As the pale mirror reflects nothing but regrets.
 
"If Narcissus was a depressed cyborg assassin"
The mirror in my head was a compact pocket mirror, but whatever floats your individual boat is great too.

    Thank you so much! :) It's based on a new novella I've been working on...

    I usually don't like poetry, but I DEFINITELY liked this. It rhymes and is a creative concept that was expressed quite well.
