Hall of Mirrors

I peer into a mirror

An endless wave of me

Shards of broken dreams

And fragments of who I used to be

—-

Suddenly my soul is clutched

By the image that I see

While I find myself scrambling

As my reflection tries to break free

—-

And I fall to my knees

Unable to believe

That all this rambling and brambling

Was never meant to be

—-

And oh I miss that part of me.

—-

I paused beside a mirror

A sideways glance, you see

And what I caught in the silver glint

Were pieces of my history

—-

I smashed it to the ground

Desperately trying to flee

The painful realization

That it was never mine to see

—-

Shards of broken mirror

Staring up at me

Your face is all among them

Reflections of who we used to be
