Mirror on the Wall

Smoke and mirrors

Hold up a mirror to society

A faint smile. Smoke screen

There is a sobbing behind the screen

A mirror that bears nothing but sad veracity 

Forlorn and bare verisimilitude

 Reflections paradox to the melancholy of an old soul

Another smile? No, a mirage

Illusions, the shadows of the great truth

A canvas that casts a shade of hideous delusions

Victims, a torturous hallucination

Lonely, solitary, desolate

A sole figure in the speculum metal

A mirror hangs on a cracking wall

Mirror Mirror on the wall, who is the saddest of them all?

You.
