Your eyes don't lie!
"Wake Up Call" by Artasylum
Peering into my reflection
I see a specter staring back.
She looks a little lost;
I’m sure she’s given up.
 
Her hollow eyes betray
an unforgiving inner voice.
Sadly she feels resigned 
to a life she didn’t choose.
 
A faint flash behind her eyes
reveals a warm, familiar glow. 
Vivid memories flare up,
as she dances through her past.
 
A wake up call is answered 
it pulls her mostly back;
Shedding her self-pity, 
she returns to present tense.
 
I give her one last glimpse, 
resolute, I follow the cue.
My reflection 's in focus
as I turn to walk away.
