Me, Myself and Marvin

Me, myself and Marvin
Look at ourselves in the mirror
We all look alike
But feel so different
We touch the cold glass
And for a second we feel you.

Marvin smiles sadly at the reflection she sees
And me pulls a face, in an attempt to cheer them both up
But she fails
Myself, I stand back, watching. Always watching  but never quite seeing.

This is our daily routine. We look at ourselves
Me, myself and Marvin
Together, alone, apart
One for all, all for one
The same, but not quite.
A smile, a wave, a tear, a palm pressed against the cold glass hoping against hope to fall through
To fall through the mirror, to you.

The End
