In the dark, the Mirror holds a secret.
|In front of me, there is a mirror, and in the mirror, there is a forbidden secret.
In a dark place lies a forbidden forest. Within, you can see the light.
I'm sorry, Mom, I had lied.
When I woke up, I was no longer in front of the mirror. I was in an empty room.
There was a different dream...
There was lightning, and there were trees.
It was a very, dark night and there was also a stream.
There was a little boy in the trees, and then he disappeared.
He was watching me.
This time when I woke up, I wasn't in a dream.
I was on the couch, reading a book.
Why was that my dream? I asked.
But that wasn't just it.
When I looked at my window the boy was there.
Am I hallucinating or is god crying red tears?
BANG! BANG! BANG! was what left the door before it broke and crashed to the floor.
I stood there petrified as the pale boy came into my house. He looked at me with his green eyes and I looked back.
"Why?" He whispered. "Why..."
He was crying.
Only I knew why.
Why I had so many dreams
Why I had a mirror with a forbidden secret...
He was the other me. A mirror shows two faces. I wear one while someone wears the other...
He was a hostage in the mirror.
