Mirror Image

The mirror was old,
not antique
just old.
Perhaps that was the reason
it didn’t seem quite right,
didn’t seem to reflect
me as I expected.
I looked harder.

I could see my surroundings
reflected as I thought they were,
the curtains and the colours,
the lamp standing naked
all present and correct.
But I wasn’t there.

I am here.
I know I am
and I’m looking
into the old mirror
where I should see myself
but I can’t.

I think it has swallowed me,
body and soul.
