The Shadow Girl and I

I looked at her,
She looked at me,
The shadow girl and I.
She moved her right hand;
I shifted my left,
The shadow girl and I.

I tried to smile;
She failed as well,
The shadow girl and I.
She tried to stop her tears;
I felt mine falling,
The shadow girl and I.

I closed my eyes;
Hers fluttered shut,
The shadow girl and I.
She balled her fist;
I curled my fingers,
The shadow girl and I.

I threw out my fist;
She did, too,
The shadow girl and I.
She felt the glass shatter;
I flinched at the sound,
The shadow girl and I.

I listened to my ragged breath slow;
She waited for her heartbeat to fade,
The shadow girl and I.
She wondered what would happen next;
I shivered in anticipation,
The shadow girl and I.

I opened my eyes slowly;
She stared back at me through the shattered mirror,
The shadow girl was I.
