The Other Me

Slowly, Creeping, Sliding, Gliding, Gripping, Choking. Ever so quietly Engulfing my being Don't know her Never seen before And yet... She is me I am her I am NOT! Glass shatters Mirror is broken Millions of pieces Hands are bleeding She is gone! She haunts me I killed her I broke the mirror Her cold dark eyes mock me My ignorance amuses her Millions of pieces millions of eyes Pieces are swept Beads of sweat into my eyes Stinging!Ow! I am all alone now And yet- She is there With me Sitting, waiting, laughing, mocking. 'I'm coming...' she says Cold,dark, metallic voice 'To become you' Soulless eyes Mirthless laugh I fight I scream NO! 'Yes' she says A blood curdling whisper 'I am you' 'You are me' She laughs
