Stepping Through The Mirror

Chimera Poetry


I stare into the the mirrors silvery depths
I stare hard, harder
trying not to let my eyes waver
willing it to take me
accept me
let me step through the mirror
past the barriers and freefall, tossed and tumbled out into a strange dimension
a new universe
will I meet dragons?
angels, demons?
I hope I find that I am an adventurer
that it is my wild soul that yearns for unchaining
for the uncharted
that I am up to challenges and thrills and exploits
that the pirate gypsy scoundrel daredevil in me will waken
and grin
I hope
I hope it is not just escape I am seeking
staring into those silvery depths
and willing
take me
take me away
let me step through the mirror

The 10th Kingdom

About chimerapoet

I write. I write a lot. A. LOT. There are times I am half blind with a sentence ricocheting off the walls of my stupid, cant be shut off to save my life, brain. I am miserable until I get it down on paper. Punch it up a bit. Usually cross out half of it. And then breathe. Relax. Only to do it all again..... But I just thought that was me. How I am. Not a writer....noooo...not me. Writers are.....writing people. People Who Write. REALLY write. Write things that matter. All grown up very important things. I am just a scribbler of sorts. And I was/am content with that....if it's true, well then....a scribbler am I. Until the thought wormed its way in to my brain (the furtive sneaky bitch) that maybe...just maybe...that is writing. My style. My strange way. But....still writing. So here I am at the dance. Not sure I know any of the moves and the music is entirely mine. But.....only one way to find out. Would you care to join me?
