No Reflection

No Reflection

I looked in the mirror today and saw my reflection was gone,

Was someone playing a chess game and I was but a pawn?

My memory doesn’t serve me when this first occurred.

I didn’t want to tell anyone for fear they’d think it absurd.

I opened the door and then the window, and tried to make a noise.

My lips were numb and so was my tongue, and then I had no voice.

"What the hell was the matter with me?" I somehow can’t rejoice!

My feet had no feeling, my hands won’t move, I'm becoming quite alarmed,

I always thought this life I had lived was the epitome of charmed.

It seemed just yesterday all was right with the world,

Now when I look down the length of me, my toes they seem all curled.

They say you know when it's time to go, or somehow you have a feeling,

Something’s not quite right, your body’s just not healing.

So I think I figured it out, this quirky chain of events,

You see, I’m rather dead right now, it makes all perfect sense!
