Mirror oh mirror...

They Say a mirror offers

A reflection

Of you

Of whom you are

Of whom you'll be

My mirror is full of cracks

Gaps

And holes

My face

My reflection is crumbled

Dissolved

To small clumps of ash

My face is thin and gaunt

My eyes lifeless

My lips broken

My hair is nothing

But small thin strands

My mirror

My reflection

My image has been altered

Changed

Mutated

Distorted

Mirror oh mirror

It is not your fault

Alice oh Alice

It's not yours either

It was those outside

It was the beautiful ones

The ones who had it all

The ones the world looked up to

That destroyed me

That destroyed Alice

Destroyed mirror

Mirror oh mirror

It's not your fault

I'm like this

Mirror oh mirror

Don't cry

Alice

Alice

Don't weep

The beauties were the one

Who did this

They took me

They twisted me

They squeezed me

And crushed me underfoot

They took my heart

They took all I am

Scrunched it like paper

And threw it in the bin

They took my soul

And burned it in the fire

They took me

And threw me out

Into the open

To be devoured by wild animals

Mirror oh mirror don't cry

Alice oh Alice don't weep

It's not your fault

You've turned into this
