the other world

It happened to me
just as I had read it would.
you stand very still,
in front of a mirror
and just stare and stare,
patiently
& it may take a minute,
or it may take an hour,
but at some point
you will be gripped by an absolute terror,
as your body realises
that the person looking back at you
is not you,
- it is the other,
in the other world.

EEEK! And what about if, in the mirror, you see a different room altogether? (or maybe you find you've just appeared on Changing Rooms, now that would be a nightmare. Don't think it's on anymore though!)

that is your own death, always waiting, always hovering, over your left shoulder - turn quickly & you just might catch a glimpse of a dark shadow...

I sometimes think that someone will appear behind me, looking over my shoulder, when I look in the mirror. I hope you are not being taken over by another being, Banksy. Can't wait for your next poem.
