"When there is nothing left to burn you must set yourself on fire"-


Mirror, Mirror lie to me
And show me what I want to see
A world untouched, unharmed by love
A world not cursed that scars above
A world of warmth not cold as ice
A world where hearts break once not twice
Mirror, Mirror lie to me
And show me what I wish to see
A moonlight night not pouring rain
Tears cried for joy and not for pain
A peaceful life
A brand new slate
A world where love can't turn to hate
Mirror, Mirror lie to me
And show me what I hope to see
A where a world of pain cannot occur
Where tears don't make my vision blur
Where happiness can't drag me down
And love won't try to make me drown
Mirror, Mirror lie to me
And show me what I pray to see
A place where I won't need to feel
Where time and life are not so real
A place where I don't need to think
Where into death I'll never sink
Mirror, Mirror lie to me
And show me what I know can't be
A world where death is not a choice
A place where I can't hear his voice
A world where cuts don't bleed or scar
Where I can watch life from afar
A world where I can hide away to die again another day

One of my problems and feelings I went though this past year and also some my friends that were going through the same thing inspired me to write this poem.
