1998 - 2010

The monster I'm sure I've become,

Showed up on camera just the other day.

The lovely white hair and pale blue skin,

It's the best I think I've seen myself.

All that I feel coming out from within,

I don't think a mirror could properly display.

Lies and disgrace pour out from my reflection,

A beauty, a vibrance I can't comprehend.

Distorted, disproportioned dive through the shutter,

Come out in plain view through a picture frame.

The truth lies in this monster I seek

What a mirror sees is a portrait unseen
