I don’t recognize the image reflected in my mirror
Be gone I scream
She moves her lips but I can’t hear her
She can’t be me, I refuse to believe her
This must be a dream
I try to get away but she pulls me nearer
I close my eyes, but her face is still in the mirror
Why won’t she leave me alone?
Her sad eyes are calling me
Her sad eyes are haunting me
Her sad eyes are taunting me
Her sad eyes are killing me
