Stand at the edge

Of unspoken memories.

I'd murmur prayers if

I believed they'd work.

I cannot weep for

Tears cannot save me.

Twisted heart

Beats its violence

Within my chest.

Hands shake, laughter bubbles

Hysteria laced

Throughout the sound.

Mirror, murder my soul

When I peer into you.

Eyes glazed, seen too much.

Smile thin, felt too little.

My face same as anyone else's.

Mirror, lie to me just once.

Lie down to sleep,

Like those I had

Chosen to forget.

Family, friends

All ghosts at my back.

Memories unspoken.

Fate deal me another.
