Mirror Mirror

Mirror mirror on the wall

I can't look at you at all.

The image of me distorted will be,

And my mind from it shackles will not be free.


Mirror mirror on the wall

You hasten my downfall.

You remind me of the reasons for my hate,

A feeling the will never dissipate.


Mirror mirror on the wall

Show me where I can hide it all.

Show me the shell of the girl I once was,

Because she is long gone.


Mirror mirror on the wall

Show me my flaws and tear me down.

Leave me lifeless and empty,

For my reflection is merely that.


Mirror mirror on the wall

Please usher in my fall.

Shatter quickly to end my pain,

I don't want to see my reflection again.
