Asking the Mirror to solve the riddle

Riddle me this Mirror, Mirror

On the wall who's lust is smattered this way and that?

You soak in the warmth of life's fleeting cause

Painted with vigor and random beauty

Smelling of subtle metallic undertones

Riddle me this oh fairest Mirror

Who's sweet sorrow will cover my instruments of fate?

Roses' colorful signature touches everything

Slivered flesh holding reflections of what is seen

Once a single eye is now a fractured spectacle

Oh Mirror, Mirror you give me shattered dreams

Crimson notes on the wall is all I see

Thanks quetzala. If I post more than there is, I might spoil it for others. Let me know if there is another way I can give a hint or two via this site, if you want.
