When I first gaze into the glass, I see
A person peering back who isn't me,
The emerald eyes are almost just like mine,
But there's a shadow ling'ring close behind.
A darkness spreads across the stranger's face,
My gentle smile with demon's lips replaced.
These shadows draw me closer to the glass
As though it were a portal I could pass.
I'm falling forward through another world
Where clouds of inky darkness mix and swirl.
And suddenly I find I can't escape,
I'm trapped inside this dim and bleak dreamscape.
And face to face with my unholy twin—
A battle that I know I cannot win.
