Self Portrait Of A Body On Fire Poem by Crow Nyxian

Self Portrait Of A Body On Fire

Rating: 5.0


Whose that in my mirror?
Her body is on fire
She tears at her skin
Till it is streaked with red
She cannot see
That I am looking at her
She is lying in her bed
Naked and scared
She hates this body
It is not hers
She looks up at me
I am a stranger to her
We are so different
Streaked Red
Lying in Bed
Looking at someone we don't know

The mirror of the physical is different from the mental, reflections of the mind are a labyrinth of demons. I can relate all to well.
