Reflections of the Mind

Staring… Reflection… Wondering… Disappointment… Sadness… Questions…. Who am I? What have I become? Where did I go wrong? When did I change? Why do I look different? How did this happen? Shake head… Look again… Voices… Don’t listen… Reflection talking… Double take… Reflection grins… Jump back… Reflection stops… Move closer… Reflection grabs me… Pulls me in… By: Nathan Bane Leccese © All Rights Reserved 05/18/09

You are being molded for the poet's fire ... there the instrument becomes the sublime desire. Courage and faith.

I feel like I've seen horror movies that have similar scenes with the hero seeing his reflection grinning at him in the mirror. Your stream of consciousness style is more direct though. I wonder what happens after the subject gets pulled in. Somehow it doesn't feel like something good... Nice write Nathan - Yoni
