Mirror image counterfeit reality

Glass house translucent life

Crystalline words fall

Slow motion

They linger just above the ground

Fast forward

Lucid moment when they fracture


Step through the looking glass

Carbon copy of my life

Obscure words rise

Fast forward

They float high in indigo twilight

Slow motion

Vague moment when they mend


Emulate, imitate, parody, travesty

Reflections of another life

Incisive words spoken

Slow motion

They cut through me I bleed

Fast forward

Broken moment when I am shattered
