Looking Glass


Once more I crossed to the other side
everything was the same, nothing had changed
It had all thrilled me once upon a time –
sent me into paroxysm – I’d been petrified

Now my hand is steady, my heart is fine
crawling into the abyss and the all-seeing eye
comforting darkness, the mystery is gone
so is the raging jealousy that it feasted upon

All hail the victor, the monster has been slayed
the odious beast that once left me in disarray
How was it achieved you may well ask – easy!
my nemesis was nothing – and utterly unworthy
