Empty Mirror

Blank face in an empty mirror:

Who are you?

Can’t be me–

My soul is dead

and only the living show in you.

I’m standing here with an

Empty heart, empty eyes,

head full of burnt words left behind.

My soul is a bird broken free of its cage

A single teardrop on an empty page–




And sometimes,

I can see it overhead;

Flying free.

It’s left me now.

My heart is broken, smashed, pieces.

So I’m staring at an empty mirror,

Watching myself disappear.

I’m just a

Blank face in an empty mirror

Got no place to go from here.

My soul is dead, my body dying.

I can’t feel the tears I’m crying.

And somehow I doubt

Every word that’s out of my mouth.

If even I can’t believe myself,

No wonder that I’ve left myself.

I’m just a recording of last thoughts and words

playing over and over

and over and over

to a

Blank face in an empty mirror

showing all my life’s mistakes.

Did I do anything right?

Is this my hell?

A place where nothing is right,

Nothing goes well?

Can I break this damned device?

Am I a prisoner to devil’s spite?

Merely a reflection of an empty mirror;

A screaming soul’s last message

that no-one ever hears.
