Do you know that one place you want to go to just get away? Well, for me anywhere except for where I am now would be perfectly fine. It seems as if nothing ever goes the way I plan for it to go and it normally ends up being exactly the opposite of what I plan. I’m stuck in a world of routine and I can’t get out of it. It’s like I’m on a path that seems to lead me to a light a new start but instead it leads to my own demise, my own destruction.

I’m looking at myself in the mirror trying to think of my next step. I have no clue of what I should do. I wish this was some fairy tale like Snow White or something like that. All I would have to say is mirror, mirror in this horrid land take me to one that is grand.

My reflection turns into a dark shadow. I run towards the door but I’m not going anywhere. I look back at the mirror and my figure is reaching his hand out of the mirror. What the heck is going on? My figure is now completely out of the mirror and is growing. The bathroom is filled with the darkness of my shadow. I’m being swallowed, choked by the cloud that is shrouding me in darkness.
