The Fears & Their Blind Stares

Heavy breathing 

Emotions seething 

Mirror stumbling in the darkness 

Chest and lungs heaving 

Reflections causing pain so heartless

Now crying, curled up and screaming 

 

Panic 

 

Breathe 

 

Fear 

 

Leave 

 

Eyes see the mirror 

Unbeknownst to all its fear 

He just reflects throughout the years 

Internalized, choking on tears 

Yet through the ignorant angry sneers 

The mirror stays on 

Reflection
