Poem by (Allison Damigella)

Mirrors are an illusion.

Elusive and unwilling, they hide the truth

Fogging our minds with false promises.


I look deep within

a bright aura with promise unfilled


She’s taunting me,

lying and filling my head with delusion.

But we both know the truth


This foundation is crumbling,

the load it must bear is crippling.


I fear the worst,

This illusion can’t last forever

Eventually we all must fall.

– Allison Damigella
