Black Lake (You Can'T See Your Reflection)

Poem By Michael Fischer

Standing stiffly at the glass doors,
zombies wait to feed on my mind.
Please take this back...I don't want it!

Mirrors' breaking;
The lake turns black.
Desensitized,
unrecognized,
I've been institutionalized!

Stalling in the human rat race,
your death appears in my blind spot.
Please take this back...I don't want it!

Mirrors' breaking;
The lake turns black.
Desensitized,
unrecognized,
I've been institutionalized!

Yellow jacket: straight and fastened;
Ideas don't wait...they're on the clock.
Please take this back...I don't want it!

My heart's breaking;
Taking in tears.
Growing heavy,
sinking quickly,
In the black lake, feeling sickly!

I'm with Callie on this one. t x
Certainly disturbing, which is the effect I'm sure you were trying for. You achieved it.
