Mirror of My Eyes {a poem}

image © Mariann Martland

Maybe at the start there was me
Maybe in the end there was you

Oh heart, you shone
Out of the window to my mind

Into the reflection of my soul
I took you down

To the chasm of my womb

Where you grew beyond all I could sustain
I tried

I raised mountains to keep you

Still, silent, mine
You

My solid ocean in the moon

Were the ground I became upon
Then ceremoniously melted

In corruptions of faith

Tar, flowing from my pours
And you

Always you

Watching through the mirror of my eyes
The mirror of my treachery

Marking your territory

Showing me you live
My cradle of death

Taking all light from the blackest night
Pulling me to your abyss

Maybe at the start there was me
Maybe in the end there was you
