A Mirrored Mind

Little escapes a mirrored mind
Questions, thoughts, and lingering doubts
All twisted and mangled together at one time
Never finding an escape out.

Memories of times good brings smiles
Followed quickly by sodden pain
Memories of all those many miles
So much lost, yet so much gained

A life of intrigue and madness
Fun and chaotic hell
Tears of joy and of sadness
Finally extroverted 
Then deeper in your shell

All of this jumbled together
Will it end…NEVER
Your mirrored mind 
Will forever lead in this game
As it slowly and methodically 
Drives you insane.
