The Thin-Skin Mirror

Reflecting on the past
All seems reversed
My life an antithesis

Seen as an image from behind
I perceive what the true self sees
Reality distorted and fragmented

But just beneath the thin-skin mirror
This wonder, the authentic awe, remains
Captured with carnivorous curiosity
As the self bleeds beyond the frame
