Dancing in the Mirror

 

Step by step, she moves

Like rain her eyes reflect

And no one sees her dancing

No one hears the music

 

Arms in motion

Spinning and twirling

The beat is silent

But still, she moves

 

 

The hands on the clock

Ever in motion, softly ticking

She ignores it, closes her eyes

The memories crash like the ocean

 

 

Through the looking glass

The world lives on

Yet inside this hidden room

She is frozen, motionless

 

 

Each image a forgotten time

Each page carefully stitched into the book

But for all that she cared about her mind

The spine was made of glass

 

 

The room appears around her

Silent, but for the beat

Never-ending, but too short

Silence is relaxing, they say

 

 

She turns off the music

The beat still pounds through her

It’s getting faster, but she doesn’t care

A drop falls, but she wipes it away

 

 

She doesn’t know why she bothers

It’s not like anyone would see
