Come forward,


Whom I dread;


Look into my eyes

At the

Reflection of yourself;


Come closer,

And watch your reflection

Become my eyes;


Let your anger and hatred

Embrace me;

Strangle me with your spite;


But then,

When my breathing

Grows weaker,


Remember that,

As I fall,

My eyes closing meekly,


You, too,

Can no longer



You are

No enemy

To me


I am

Not alien

To you
