Shadow of My Former Self

pic2

 I stand

and look

in the mirror

and I say to myself

“I’m better than you”.

I step back

still looking

in the mirror

and I hear myself

singing

“I’m better than you”.

I turn around

I walk away

I close my eyes

and think to myself

“I wish I was somewhere else”

and here I go again

singing to myself

“there is here”

“and here I am”

“and there I go”

and here I am standing still

silently

a better me,

no better than you.
