I look into my Mirror, an ordinary Mirror?
Above the glowing coals of the fire, burning embers.
Mirrors, show us what we look like not who we are.
They tell no lies, or is it only lies they tell.
I cry but my Mirror laughs back at me.
An evil, throaty laugh.
I look, I look hard.
Stare at my Sanity.
You look hard enough and you become the monster you create.
I watch her, Me? Wait.
I pass through its glassy surface, to that other me.
It looks like me, only not quite.
The grin on her face is dark, scary almost.
Was the Mirror placed here to keep us out because its such a horrible world
on the other side.
Or are we keeping them out?
My image comes in waves.
I have to be brave.
I force myself to watch.
Is my Mirror a gate, and the only thing that keeps me from entering
is my own pale reflection.
Its time for recollection,
why do I hide in the Mirror?
when its she herself who is the haunted house.
I look. Look !!!!!!!
She puts a finger to her lips,
“Hush, no one knows I’m here”
She turns, I don’t.
I watch other me walk away into the arms of another girl.
Our minds distort the Mirror.
Cant you see, She’s drowning.
Help, help her, help me?
She’s in danger, it’s too late.
Stop. I look, it’s just that stupid creepy mirror doing it again,
Just don’t look back.
My shadow never leaves me
and I wear only sleeves now
hiding scars cut deep down inside.
Sleep deep down, down.
You fear what’s in the dark don’t you. Not the dark itself.
Oh if only I were an Elf.
But the monsters are within, will they win?
It’s lucid dreaming, I fear I’ve been screaming.
Like falling with no bottom or end in sight,
Not even star light,
I shall take flight or else fall to my death.
Just stop and take a breath.
So Mirror mirror on my wall
If I walk or even crawl, I swear to you I’ll never fall,
I’ll always stand tall
and win at this game we all call life,
and never look back.
Don’t look back.
