The Lake Knows Me

Who is she?
And why does she look like me?
Repeats everything I do,
But in a different way than I am used to.
Why does she follow me?
And why doesn’t she talk?
She disappears as soon as I move away,
Like she was never there anyway.
I can see my vulnerability in her eyes,
It makes me feel things I never did like.
She makes me think about my true self,
Makes me question everything I teach myself.
I want to hold her,
Want to figure out the mystery in her.
A transparent shield protects her,
Keeps me from being her.
I think she is the only person who truly knows me,
My consciousness refuses to believe me.
I am terrified of how I will survive,
If anyone took her away from my sight.
Time goes by, I keep staring,
My heart aches but I never stop caring.
The person in front of me distorts,
As soon as my friend jumps off the rocks.
In the swaying water of the lake I see,
The person I have become staring back at me.
Realizing how it came to be,
Is the most frustrating feeling there ever can be.
