A pretentious Writer's Cramp entry
I couldn’t look away from my reflection,
Like fractured glass knowing only brokenness,
Relying on my perfect imperfection,
I fell behind an opaque mask of righteousness.

Infected by splinters of authority,
I couldn’t look away from my reflection,
My psychopathic superiority,
Was the soul of my rock and roll perception.

As purchaser of insincere affection,
Sincerity was never thought essential,
I couldn’t look away from my reflection,
Enamored by love's difference of potential.

A major part of life is oft deficient,
Of opinions that introduce objection,
But I've found my response was most sufficient,
When I didn't look away from my reflection.
