I force the words through my teeth
Because I could never get past the surface
Chiseling away at stubborn ice.
Moment of truth.
Everything you wanted
Everything I wanted
is coming to a head.
It's a matter
Of placing your feet correctly,
And starting at the gun,
Not after it.
And I still pretend it's the wind.
Scream lies at me.
I'll turn the mirror on you.
And you can have a shouting match with it.
Take it and yell your heart out
Cry it out.
Come down from there.
Look into this glass.
Still clutching those old pearls,
Can't be fixed.
I told you about the surface,
You couldn't get past it.
Why am I still talking to my reflection?
