The man in the mirror 

Is a life long foe

He accompanies me every day

A dark silhouette

Mimics my every move 

Making a mockery of

Every good intention, 

Every positive emotion, 

Every possible romance.

No second escapes his scorn

Minutes drag out in his presence

I try to convince him to like me;

Singing his praise

Writing his poems

Building sculptures in his name 

But to no avail. 

I tried keeping him away;

But like a magnet to metal

he is drawn to my pain

I build walls 

And he breaks them down

I find peace 

And he brings chaos

I find a hiding place 

And he finds me

I find hope

And he crushes it.
