Mirror-image



my mirror never did show
the me I so desperately wished to be
but the ghost of a girl I once thought I knew
pale
with raven-dark hair
and eyes staring into the hollow of my soul
brooding

while others ~ with rosy cheeks and golden hair
so fair
't was so unfair
smiled always ~ ever so brightly
and strode always ~ ever so lightly

what mistake made me ~ what fault in my stars
what reason for this treason

my mind raging against the light of day
hiding away my heart in the night
~ broken at the beginning
~misshapen from the start

never would there evermore a song upon a breeze for music has forsaken us went lost among the trees now darkness has surrounded us and vanquished all the light in silence now we just await the visitor in the night
