Reflections in the Mirror
Poems

Alone

An All Too Well Known Pain

Anger

Bottled Up

Do Not Cry

Do You Know Me

Missing You

Retribution

Silence

Sweet Bird

The Mirror

Together

What Am I

Without You

YOU ARE

Forbidden Pleasures

Bottled Up

Bottled up inside of me
Thatís where I keep it
Hidden from the world around
Bottled up inside of me
My little ball of rage.

I canít let it out,
I canít, I canít, I CANíT!
I mustnít let them see my tears
I must keep to myself
Locked within this hell

Bottled up inside of me
The little ball grows bigger each day
Itís getting harder to keep it in
NO, I wonít give them the satisfaction
I will not let them see my anguish
I wonít, I wonít, I WONíT!
Thatís what they want
My submission

But even though I struggle and fight
To keep my rage bottled up
I know that soon
My rage will engulf my mind
And may the Gods have mercy
On humanity when it does.
