      ‘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.
