‘Dark Edge of the Mirror’

In life, we truly walk a fine line
Like a mobius loop we cannot define
Finite from infinite, sane from insane
And sometimes darkness from light.

A reflection of innocence, long since gone
Hope into hopelessness, it seems
As I face the world in a reality
Gone mad, turned upside down.

I waken slowly from my dreams
Only to find nothing has changed
Who is that person in the mirror?
I see the image of someone deranged.

The light edge of reason quickly fades
Shadows advance, closing swiftly in
With anguished cries I strike out
In denial, against a tortured reflection.

Shards of shattered trust betrayed
Splinter within my soul
Falling into the empty void there now
Which once was a heart that was whole.

Tears, stinging like acid rain
Blur visions of a future now gone
Looking down I see a blossoming stain
Its color, blood red, running strong.

For every face of light I show
I hide a face of darkness
A facade of normalcy? I don’t know
Turning inward, I embrace the cold.

Reveling in it, not always revealing
To others who would then know my pain
That when the shadows rule my mind,
All light is banished, at least, for a time.
