Tricky Mirror!!

I LOOKED INTO THE MIRROR’S GAZE AND BEFORE ME I DID SEE

EYES….SO, SO FRIGHTENING… STARING BACK AT ME

WHO WAS BEING REFLECTED, I DIDN’T RECOGNISE THE FACE

THEN WITH DAWNING HORROR THE FEATURES I DID TRACE

MY EYES SLOWLY WANDERED FROM FOREHEAD TO POINTED CHIN

AND AS I TRIED TO BACK AWAY, I WAS QUICKLY SUCKED IN

UNTIL I WAS STARING OUTWARD, FROM THE MIRROR TO THE WORLD

THE LAUGHING FIGURE STARING INWARD FLEW AWAY, WINGS UNFURLED.

 

YOU MIGHT BLAME ME FOR WHAT HAPPENED, BLAME ME FOR MY PLIGHT

HOW DID I KNOW ‘TWAS MAGIC,  LOOKING IN THE MIRROR AT NIGHT?

AM I FOREVER DOOMED THIS WAY, IS THERE A POSSIBLE ESCAPE?

CAPTURED WITH A SCARING LOOK BY A CREATURE IN A CAPE

SO, HERE I AM A PRISONER, ‘TIL ANOTHER DARES LOOK IN

I COULD ONLY WISH IT BE THE ONE WITH THE POINTED CHIN

I HAVE TO THINK QUITE DEEPLY, SURELY I COULD FREE MYSELF WITH EASE

FOR HOW ABOUT YOU, DEAR READER, LOOK INTO THE TRICKY MIRROR,  PLEASE?nemesis

  6. That was thought provoking, like meeting yourself coming back like a doppleganger. a bit spooky, yet fascinating, I prefer my mirror from about forty years ago, but I lost it.
