A Poem by Thrushsong

I can't watch my life and live it.

I'll smash every mirror in the world

I'll be no longer a slave to the cold eye
With which I try to see just like another
See as the one I want to see me sees me
As the stranger, the friend, the mother

This veil of glass only grows desire
Beneath the surface judgement peers
My weakness lurks in its dark shallows
My wants, my shadows, my fears

Each window to emptiness will shatter
Like water spills shards fall from each frame
And are ground to sand beneath my heel
With my obsession, my hate, my shame

No more wasting time on looking
I can't watch my life and live it
So I'll choose life without reflection
And I'll grind all the mirrors to grit
