The Shattered Mirror
The shattered Mirror:
This is the girl’s reflection in the shattered mirror
Drafted to live in a world of endless tests and horror
For sorrow has started to tasted appealingly sweet
As the raging fire in her soul will no more retreat
To the outer world she faked a smile while dying from the inside
In her eternal torment she has decided to live and reside
Yet every kindly heart knows a point beyond which it shatters
And after which nothing else has significance, or even matters
For even if she extended her hand when life turned pitch black
She had no guardian to steer her through her journey and back
Ignited, hopeless words, drive her madness to insanity
Way beyond the wasteland of hope love and humanity
Conflicting thoughts, demons resurfacing from within
Eating and claiming her world, while watching it crumbling
Ember to Inferno, watch her soak in her tears now
Pleading to the merciless sky, watch her bow
Next to her tears she lays bleeding
Prisoner of life she spent it crying
She has lost faith in a higher power in life
As she was destined to grapple with strife
In the ashes of the tormenting lies of life she dies and resides
Bleeding from the outside, dying from the inside she hides
Moment after the other he inflicts pain on her fragile soul
Tearing it wide open leaving behind an empty hole
Yet she was weighed, measured, and destined to fall
And he was the spectator who watched her crawl
With heartless words that were determined to crush her spirit
Razor like blades, they aimed to destroy yet will she survive it?
She held her tears as they burned her spirit in silence
With words unspoken she was claimed by the darkness
For she was life’s sacrificial pawn
Tears restrained with no right to moan
Can you look at my reflection in those trembling words?
Or do you still claim both girls to come from separate worlds?
The wind on my back with only the presence of my shadow
I’ve swallowed the pain let it sink, until I turned hollow
Haunted, while dreaming and yearning yet never receiving
Praying for the will to live, dying yet never seen breathing
Cast between the living, yet dying with every single moment
Dreaming wide-awake, ironically living equates torment
Oh can’t you see the withering lights of a soul tested beyond threshold?
Where even in hope, belief, and faith she failed to find her stronghold
For every soul has a frequency with which it lives suppressing darkness
Beyond which it resonates with the self-claiming destruction of madness
For she is the daughter of apathy, dismissed with falling fists
Yet can you finally see her sorrow with mine as they coexists?
Broken, she and I lie lifeless about the misery in life unable to tell
Betrayed even in death as it claims our bodies hers, its vessel
Fragile in every single way, depleted beyond rejuvenation
For we were directed to the land of post-mortal damnation
Even in death we were incapable of escaping the agony
As her soul resides in mine playing death’s symphony
Now the mirror lies broken on the floor, shattered
Where life’s insignificant, as nothing ever mattered
Yet in her death they only saw the insanity
As her Eulogy spoke of nothing but instability
For she was invisible and broken to all the world but the mirror
To the shattered glass that reflected her pain and my horror
