Behind the Sharp Turns

Whenever I pass by the mirror
I wish they could see beyond the 
Chemical reactions of optical 
Illusions, reversing all images
Back and forwards
Mazes through technical spins

Behind the Sharp Turns

There is something unexpected
Out of corners of corneas
Pupils dilating after an intellectual
Rollercoaster thrown through time
Sideways turns and flipping into
A distortion of who I really am

I’m beautiful I’m beautiful
With a battle worn scowl
Mean-muggin’ my way through crowds

You don’t know me

Scars are erased off my face
Closing off the portals to the bigger wounds
Inside, excess emotional propellers

          still pumpin pumpin

broken hearts with each revolution
Bleeding onto memories scented
With disaster and ill managed luck

My soul is messy
i'll mess you up

Pen stained soul and fire element essence fades on with
Each flip of the switch
Each turn of the hand
Each and everytime
You find out the Devil can Slow Dance

I’m such a bad girl
Breathing air of sulfur and grief
Inside lungs who repent
Having met me
I’m sorry I’m sorry!
For igniting that burning sensation
That you cannot seem to kiss away
Once the caress of reason slides from my fingertips
Onto your back and such smoldering whispers
echoes through ears

The mirror breaks
