Mirror, Mirror - Poem by Jaya Jaspal

Mirror, mirror, can't you see,
What you show is killing me,
Nobody knows how I feel,
Inside

Ice in my veins,
Blood in my eyes,
Look for the light,
It never arrives

Hate in my heart,
A razor by my side,
The darkest nights,
Weigh on my mind

Nights full of pain,
Days of the same,
In every laceration,
There is more shame

You kept the sunshine,
Left me with rain,
Hurt but never cried,
Worked, forever tried

Mirror, mirror, can't you see,
What you show is killing me,
Nobody knows how I feel,
Inside
