Empty Reflection

Turn around and see

The mirror on the wall.

Face it with all your strength

And stare into the eyes

As they glare back.

The emptiness you normally see

Has vanished.

They burn holes into your mind

With the hatred you’ve placed in them.

They reflect the putrid image

You’ve permanently engraved

Into the glass of your mind.


Why do you continue

To allow this hatred to engulf you?

It’s tearing you apart

But you don’t even notice,

It’s all you’ve ever known.
