Mirror

Falling deeper and deeper 

Into the black silence;

Counting the stars -

Milestones of loss,

Constellations of mourning…

Never-ending fall,

Mysterious gravity

Of a dying star

Struggling somewhere

On the edge of the galaxy of pain…

I close my eyes and imagine

My true face in the soul’s mirror:

I see a gentle animal,

Voiceless,

Resigned to its fate.
