Mirror Image

I look in the mirror and see another stare back at me,

a stranger staring back  with such  twisted glee.

This is the person all see instead of the real me,

yet it is not I but the soul that runs free…

 

Starting to cry I yell "Who are you?"

The image smiles and thumbs his nose at me:

 

"I am you as you are me,

the one true person all will see…

 

I know you better then you know yourself,

all your dirty little secrets piled high on the shelf ;

 

in darkest moments I am always there

hiding in corners of the shame we share…

 

Perhaps I am real and you are not

the inner demons you have forever fought!"
