Artist's Description

Illustration for my poem of the same name This is how it’s done

This is how it’s done

I am but a mirror of
your wants
your musts
your needs
your fears.

I am but a projection of
your history
your view
your understanding
your perception.

I am but a phantom of
your pain
your hurt
your torture
your anxiety.

I slide behind a curtain
 hidden amongst
the discarded furniture of your mind
 concealed behind
the ghosts of your past
 obscured by
the spectres of your nightmares.

I am a piece of fiction, none of it is true.
I am an actress in your private film.
I am an obsession, a drug.

I am prophecy made flesh.
