You, Mirror

everyday i see you hanging on the wall
like the eyes of night guarding moments at the hall
being a spectator in my daily life
you didn’t seem to mind
in the spell of silence, radiating fright

got scared when i passed by you last night
bright stroke of light came in from outside
i felt the quivers of my bones
as my mind deciphered impending overtones

it might be an illusion
when the ghost suddenly appeared
i heard myself screaming

as i saw myself with a different face
but i took time looking at you
i realized the ghost was me
scaring myself out of a mirror
faked by the moment into a horror

sometimes our lives may get into tears
as we cower ourselves in some fears
we can’t be weak in every scene
strength is derived from faith and felt from within

________________________


i’ll bring the past with me
and fly it across the clouds
i ‘ll gather enough dark pigments
and drop them into the sea
the salt of the deep blue ocean
will dissolve the aerial impurities
and into the floor of the azure waters
my past will be forgotten but repeated
in a hundred years more in another place
another time, to different people…
