Dark Poet Society : "In Reflection"

"In Reflection"

The face that stares back looks like me
It looks older but familiar
Slightly tired and worn but it's me
It gazes at me quizzically 
It asks who I am and I reply I don't know anymore
I once knew without question
Back when I was full of fire
Nothing was too much and everything was an adventure
But that spark has been extinguished
It was doused for me long ago
Now all I can do is look at myself
And wonder where I went
The body is the same but it feels empty
The soul is in hiding as darkness takes a hold
And the look that stares back has grown cold
