Reflection

Spiders and centipedes crawl beneath my skin
I bite and I fight in a battle I cannot win

This cage of flesh is forever tightening
No amount of nurturing can cure this frightening
Sense of dread I feel growing clearer and clearer
As I stare at the figure on the other side of the mirror

She mimics me; every single move I make
Yet, inside I know she’s deadlier than any snake
