They looked for me everywhere

Behind the kitchen door

under my mattress

outside  the lawn

inside the bathroom

in the dark attic

and even in the long forgotten outhouse.

I screamed and yelled

all the time

begging them to glance

in my direction

but none heard my high pitched shrill.

I was right there

where they stood

just a hand away

stuck inside the cursed mirror

unable to escape.

For days they weeped

endlessly in my absence

and then comfortably pushed me away into oblivion.

However they opened door after door

only to hear the stillness,

occasionally smiling at the mirror

that left me confused.
