Shattered Mirror

Woke up wrong side of the bed

all pins and needles

porcupine quills

thunder and lightening

Throbbing nerves at the base of my spine

spreading tendrils of electricity out through my body

my fingertips and toes tingling

until I want to scream

from the tension that is building

Want to throw a rock

at my reflection

break the mirror

unleash whatever monster

is calling from the other side

welcome her home into my arms

twirl her around until we are a blur

dance ’til our feet bleed

until the boundaries dissolve

and we become one

Throw our heads back

in reckless laughter

wicked delight

Time to breathe fire

  1. Wow! Such a powerful and vivid description of what you were feeling (sorry about that). I love the way you take us in tiny steps through the view and feelings you feel. Such a great piece! I really love your words and the way you weave them into such stunning pieces of art! The true measure of a great writer is when they can take you into their world and make you see and feel what they feel – YOU ARE GREAT!
