Gold and silver-
It’s all the same.
Framing the mirror-
They say it reflects.
It doesn’t. The mirror doesn’
Mirrors were created by the devil.
Envy is a sin.
It poisons the heart in every reflection and whispers-
“Beauty is your only weapon. Use it for salvation”
It echoes a flawed world-
Never beautiful, never perfect, never enough.
Each reflection leads the eye to the brink of insanity.
It whispers everlasting youth-
The greatest lie of all,
Disguised as the greatest wish ever made,
Marching along with faceless soldiers
In a dream parade.
You can’t look away.
It won’t let you.
Your dreams, your desires, your wishes,
You are the slave of your desires.
But when you do look away,
When you return to the realm of real and the sane,
You are drowning.
You drown in seas of fire.
