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
