about

A reflection is a cruel thing, for more than one reason.

Song dedicated to JitterbugJive/BaldDumboRat and to Kryptchild, writers and artists of my favorite tumblrs.

I love you both and I'm so glad I met you at Bronycon.

lyrics

Reflection

-I sit in a room, alone, at night in a daze
With demons to face, in moonlight’s embrace
Glaring at a disgrace.
It glares back, disgust etched on its face
I contemplate the mirror deface.

But that won’t help me now, I’ve seen what I’ve lost,
The lovestruck abandoned, the hearts that I’ve hardened,
The lines that I’ve crossed,
-I glance once more at the glass
Hoping I’ll be reflected at last

I’ve tried looking on, but I can’t meet those eyes
And I can’t force a smile despite how hard I try,
Mascara runs, as the tears fall and dry,
There’s sobs, sighs and cries and I’m wondering why

-But “why?” is not a question with answers to spare
-Despite being a question I see everywhere.
I chance one more look into the glass
Hoping that I’ll be reflected at last.

I feel it inside, trying to break free
Shackled and buried, imprisoned within
I feel it inside, so why can’t I see,
Anything in this reflection of me.

The being I was, Who I long to be,
Is taunting, is glaring, is staring at me.
So mirror mirror, won’t you close your eyes?
Dispel the memories, the promise, the lies.

I just want to match, I just want to move on,
Yet the deafening heartbeat, keeps drumming along.
I chance one more look into the glass,
Hoping that I’ll be reflected at last.

I feel it inside, trying to break free
Shackled and buried, imprisoned within
I feel it inside, so why can’t I see,
Anything in this reflection of me.
Reflection of me.

Mirrors don’t lie, and it’s plain to see.
Nothing worth saving reflected in me.
