blacker than hate

blacker than hate
eyes of a reflection
staring back at me-
for what she lives,
i know not.

through no mirror
might i glimpse
this, this darkness
the evil of my soul,
identical, to me.

only when i glance
unto the glassy pool
sheltered from all
untouched by stormy skies
my heart.

for when i look
into this place
i can only see
the worst,
in me.
