A Stroll Thru My Mind

I suddenly approach a mirror during a stroll thru my mind

tiptoeing slowly……afraid of what I may find

first I see myself, so innocent and kind

until everyone took advantage then I had to snap on them

one at a time

to forget them I dove straight into addiction

it quickly became my own personal obsession

it held me and comforted me on many endless nights

never giving up on me and filling me with delight

but reality always finds you

no matter how long you can hide

and I realized my delight had soured

never again to grow ripe

just then a strong breeze blew up around me

shaking the mirror from side to side

until I realized where I was

and that it had been awhile ago since I died
