This was one of my finalized pieces in my poetry class.
In my mirror I am a reflection, cool to the touch.
I am surrounded by anything imaginable, and more.
I am incapable of leaving this fragile universe,
as incapable as I am of stepping through the breakable glass portal...
skipping through thin air like a rose pedal torn by Its own thorn. They told It Its death would not be fair but It did not care.
