-the Looking Glass Guardian- - Poem by darkpuppet loveless
It watches the changes in the dark
Through a mirror with spider web cracks
Huge chunks are missing
Scattered about the floor carelessly
Stained and caked with dried blood.
It watched when its owner first saw her baby sister
How her first friends abandoned her
How in the end she stands next to it
Taking its hand and calming it as it cries
She tries to hold it together but cries too
They’ve been forgotten by friends of six years
For some stranger they’ve only known for one
“Oh Tristan” she sobs “I’m so sorry, you shouldn’t have to
Suffer with me.” It blinks the tears away
In the mirror she’s talking to her last chance.
The one who can fix the mirror, Kerith
She was another who was left by the two
Another lonely soul who had it as rough as her
Someone else who could be a true friend.
It was ecstatic when Kerith slept over
When they went to go see countless movies
Then others came, Jill, Abby, and Ashley
Finally being able to laugh again, it been so long
She’s entered a young writers contest with others encouragement.
In the end its mirror is a little less broken
And the world is changing as they wait
But now Kerith has joined them in the faintly glowing dark
The two girls help it stand, together as best friends.
Not even fate can break their trust
If she’ll ever see her baby sister again
If the two will crawl back begging for forgiveness
We may never know, but in the end
The two best friends stand.
