Hit the lights

Call my name from the fog
Look at my reflection
 Through the looking glass
And watch myself degrade.

Hit the lights
I can't bear to see
It burns my soul
for eternity

The pause button is frozen
Life is my sacrifice
The play button is broken
fast forward to my demise.

Catch a smile
savour it for a while
Melancholy is a life style
you're not worthwhile, bottom of the pile.

Dominate your stance
Steal a glance
out of your trance
Fragment this dance.

    Powerful language and emotion. You rhyme 'frozen' with 'broken,' and 'sacrifice' with 'demise,' how cool is that! Clever mono-rhyming in your final two verses, and great construction throughout. Well done, Stacey! Best wishes, Keith
