Mirror

Poem By C.R. Ebowski

I wearily raise my head
Fix my eyes into the mirror
What do I see there?
A reflection stares back at me
Face battered by time
Eyes filled with fear
Pale skin fading into the light
There it is again
Do you hear it?
Voices throb in my head
Shrieking words of disgust
Tormenting my thoughts
Forever assuring me
There is nothing left
But this reflection of mine

Comments about Mirror

I hate mirrors for revealing my secrets. Don't you? Well penned.

Battling Demons

I fold my shaking hands and hang my weary head
Praying one day I will be able to leave my past behind
God help me understand how to face these trials
And in the end be able to keep my peace of mind

Your Lies

Look into my eyes and deny the truth
Tell me a lie that I haven’t heard before
Tilt your head and smile
Believe that your charm is impressive

Run

When all fails
Run...
Leave me alone
Control

Life

Hatred fumes
Anger consumes
Envy explodes
Jealousy implodes

The Last Night

A dark red liquid drips
Off of my swollen lips
Coming from flesh that tore
Forming a puddle on the floor

The Walk

Whaling violins
Resonating cello
Methodical piano
Nearing footsteps
