Another Broken Mirror

Another Broken Mirror

A Poem by Deadline

A mirror tends to show what we believe to be true, but know that what you see isn't always what others see when looking upon you.


With my headphones on and volume up,

I slowly die, and it really sucks.

I try to smile, but I just cant.

I just want to forget everything I am.

A failure, a loser, another lost soul,

A junkie who got clean before getting old,

A man who just wanted everyone to smile,

But who can no longer view the world like a child.

I'm crumbling like a weathered stone,

And everything just keeps getting cold.

I wish I could be numb again,

But I value you too much, my friend.

So I sit here with my headphones on,

While life around me continues going wrong.

I once could find only peace,

But I've forever lost that part of me.

My heart aches, and I don't know why.

I don't think I'm afraid to die.

I try to smile, but I can't seem to.

I just want to forget everything about you.
