man in the broken mirror

This mirrored image I stand before
Stares back in curiosity
Unrecognised
Alien.

Look deeper
And we do
In sync
Still… nothing.

We share the same aches
The same pains
The same thoughts
Simultainously seperate.

We cant help one another
Until one another helps themselves
Then, and only then
Can progress continue.

From the inner
Manifested from mist
From the outer
Carved from stone.

Together and alone
Forever and since all has been
We have shared and have seen
This life, through the same dream.

We are one
We are me
We are us
We are three.

More sides to this mirror
Than first thought
More sides to this identity
Than inner and outer.

As I pick the shards out
From bloodied knuckles
I leave this mirror and this man
In more pieces than I can bother to count.

There is no trick
Just live
Just exist
With identity shards protruding from bloodied fist.
