Reflection

In the window...
In the ocean...

I see sorrow
I see confusion

I'll wake up tomorrow
And...forget my confessions
-
I regret every given sin
Replaying it all in my mind

Tattoos repent on my skin
They're serving a lifetime

Scars reveal past pain
And it's all mine

I see my eyes! / I fear my lies!
I scream inside! / I hide behind!

Tears won't fade! / Lost my faith!
I'm not okay! / It's too late!

I see through the cracks
Into my fallen reality

I put up a poor act
My transparent sanity

My soul finally snapped
Unleashed the real me
-
In the mirror...
In the destruction...

I see terror
I see justification

I'll wake up as an avenger
...Of my former reflection
In the wake of my vengeance
I will call your repentance my justice

I am stunned once again at how moving your writing is. Every line has my riveted and glued to the screen. It is so touching, heartbreaking, beautiful, amazing, splendid, elegant, haunting....

This has become a secret favorite of mine. I can't stop reading it aloud to myself over and over when I can. :P

Very well written. I like how it ended with the character giving herself a fighting chance (or I think she does).
