mirror

You said you weren’t coming back
but I see you in mirror reflections.
When I turn round, you
Disappear.

Within a flaw
in the glass, there is a
Whispering.
I claw at its cracks.

You cannot fool me.
I am a free soul. You will
Torture me no longer.

If I scrape hard enough, it
will break, and I will be
free,
So I scrape until my hands are numb.

 

It finally snaps, and I
gasp. I cut myself on the smooth
Edges.
The blood runs wild and happy.
