blue lights in the mirror

blue lights in the mirror drops chasing down
the windshield cracks spread like spiderwebs
a pretty web with tiny droplets once web of
deceit divide and conquer conquer the terror
the loneliness wash away the nightmares as
if erasing a chalkboard smooth and black
ready for a bright new day pristine cold chalk
gripped write down your feelings, dear no
feeling can be bad admit your guilt free
yourself let it all go float like a butterfly
blue lights in the mirror back inside your
head headache and cold something seems
wrong two wrongs do not make a right turn
on red keep an eye on the raindrops drop of
brandy if you please blue lights bounce from
tree to tree sea to shining sea
