Not everything in the Manor is as it seems...

The Manor

I woke up and received my meal
From stoic maids, funereal and grim. 
A butler met me at the door,
And I passed off my coat to him. 
The Mirror held its former sights, 
A little child with ruffled hair
Who looks at me with eyes my own
And keeps me rooted with his stare. 

The strangest things have happened here;
This manor isn't what it seems-
A darkened place in disrepair,
Alive with former lives and dreams.
I've never had a butler yet,
And maids are just beyond my cheque;
The mirrored child is not my own,
But one who fell and broke his neck.
