The looking-glass

by hangonz92

I walked alone into the shallow lake and saw

everything

laid out before me like a canvas.

It captured

everything.

Even the empty space just before my feet.

It captured

everything.

I saw my mother crying in a blackened gown. I saw

my sister with smoke in her eyes. I saw

flesh and earth like a kaleidoscope of life before me. I saw

life and she saw me.

Like a looking-glass through

eternity,

yeah, I saw

life and she saw me.

 

I turned around and dried my feet,

caked in dirt and leaves,

I went away.

 

With

everything

too clear, I followed the darkness through to

eternity.

I stayed naked in the darkness,

I stayed naked and I stayed free.
