Into the looking glass

Into the looking glass

A Poem by Catharsis

I run for the lake but as my foot leaves the ground I see a glass barrier over he water.
As I break through glass cuts into my skin I shriek in pain, the water is as cold as ice.
I try to reach the surface but the glass in my skin moves leaving me defenceless.
As I drown a burning sensation fills my lungs and I think about every mistake I've ever made.
I resite a prayer before slipping into darkness.
