I need you to be quiet so you don't have to think over the sound of your voice.
I need you to come in here, in this room. It's my mind. I need you to see what it looks like when you're alone with yourself in it.
I'll wait out here. You just pay close attention to this room and how you'll get in
Did you miss it? Oh.
There are mirrors on every wall
Each mirror reflects into another, and all reflect these reflections, and small things get big and big things get bigger
Things that aren't even really there appear
Sight is just the way light reflects off things but suddenly you're seeing things that aren't anything at all except reflections of themselves
You are the only one in the room and everything is reflecting different than it is
You see the things getting smaller and farther within each reflection within every mirror, but you're just one.
You peer to the side, trying to see around yourself
but your reflection is in the way every time until maybe you aren't even there, then or you're just there to take up the space of the matter of your atoms or you're the only thing that's real and nothing else
Someone calls you from outside, someone shouts at you to get out, we have to go somewhere or do something or see someplace
And you look around at all the reflections and there are no doors or windows and you shout that at the other side of the mirrored walls but Someone can't hear and Someone keeps shouting to get the **** out we're going to be late just go like Someone doesn't even see the walls but you can't see Someone on the other side of them so they must be there
If there were a fire right now, what would you do? If the fire reflected again and again, if the heat bounced back on you from all sides and the smoke swirled farther and farther into forever?
It's not up to code, is it. Building Services would never allow it. But you're in it.
There is a physical barrier you can't see between me and what you need me to be.
You didn't design this mind. You didn't even put yourself in it. But Someone's **** frustrated with you anyway.
And you begin to think that maybe there are doors and windows that you just can't see because of all the reflections
