Heeding the Warning

My Inner Darkness

I saw a replica of me

Standing in the mirror

She moved as she pleased

She looked happy

Comfortable in her own skin

The lights went dark

I tried to scream

Words were lost within me

A tapping sound betrayed

My inner peace

As lights flickered I saw

A new entity standing there

In the mirror

With vultures flying over

A warning for another time

“Don’t look back,” a voice sounded

Something compelled me to approach

The mirror before me

I touched through with metaphysical hands

Somehow courage welled up within me

As I grasped the dark being within the glass

One quick swipe made with my hand

Upon her mouth now silent

My chance for domination arrived

An opportunity to win the battle

Implantation of thought passed between us

As we fought to take over

Both couldn’t survive

Two worlds colliding

Each coveting control

Crashing my fist harshly upon the mirror

With no fear of future visitations

In destroying the glass

Power left her

And with that, she was gone

I saw her as my inner darkness

And had to say goodbye

For we could not co-exist

If I were to progress further

Keeping her warning vivid in my mind

I will not look back

And be warned

To stop dwelling in the past.

Turning toward a new path

I walk away
