One-way Mirror

October 1, 2010
Mirror, mirror on the wall
Why is it that i see my fall?
This glassy surface shows me all
The me that wants out
That constantly shouts
Bloody fingertips
Little cuts
Little slips
Bruises covering from head to toe
The little girl screaming "no!"
The whispers of a violent past
All this show through thick layered glass
Inside the icy prison dark brown eyes glare
Outside in the hot air
Light brown eyes only stare
The outside ignore the pain inflicted
Ignores those pointless screams
Her other half
The dark side she hides
No reason to acknowledge her
The inside
This girl that feels
But she is locked inside a empty room behind a one way mirror
The outside, a mechanical doll
She doesn't feel
Has no say
Refuses to stomp her foot
All that is hidden
All that is opened wide
Is it the in or outside?
Mirror, mirror on the wall
Whos the strongest one of all?

This is one of the scariest poems I've read. It reads like flashes of grotesque scenes a horror movie.
