Vile Creature

Written by: Casey Strong

You're a creature so vile.
At your mere sight
I have to choke back the bile.

I'm getting wise to your gimmick,
You're astride with every step of mine.
Everything I do you mimic;
You're nothing more then an idiot pantomime.

When my gaze catches yours
You look straight back.
It's that stare I abhor,
For the emotions it lacks.

Your stare is unflinching,
It burns to my core.
My nerves near panicking,
Filled with spectral horror.

Overwhelmed with paralyzing fear.
Reality seems so unclear.
Why are you only here
When I peer into a mirror?
