I saw an illusion and it frightened me

From where I sit

In the reflections of glass

Stands a pig faced man


A being of hate

With a face of evil

Breeds fear like no one can


I rub my eyes

And try to refocus

Knowing it's my imagination


But fear overwhelms

That he might exist

This horrible abomination


He never moves

Stands stock still

This lucid apparition


But I believe

He just might move

With pure absolute aggression


In my mind

I know he's not real

This fantastic wretched being


Now everywhere I look

He just stands

This pig faced man I'm seeing


Now time has passed

And the image is gone

If real, I know why it came


To plant a seed

And change my life

So nothing is ever the same


A being of hate

with a face of eveil

breeds fear like no one can


From where i sit

In the reflection of glass

Stands a pig faced man
