Do you recognize the pain in me?
I ask because I feel it in you,
Buried deep, now on the surface,
Do you recognize the hurt in my eyes?
I ask because I see it in you,
Once hidden, now showing,
Do you recognize the scars on my soul?
I ask because the knife is in your hands,
Blade stained red, wounds weeping,
Do you recognize the journey of my life?
I ask because your time is ending,
Fading out, the soul is leaving,
Do you recognize the darkest side of me?
I ask because the mirror reveals all,
Reflection staring back, unknowing,
Do you recognize me?
I ask because I recognize you……….
