The culprit

My grapple with the world comes to an end here. Why was I blaming the people around for the happenings when I had the culprit in front of me all the time?

“She stands firmly, with her eyes staring into mine whenever I come across her.”

She stands firmly, with her eyes staring into mine whenever I come across her.

Such credence, charisma, solidity and pride that till now paled the crimes she did, the sins that brought me here. I never knew that I would have to face her with this someday when my faith and trust couldn’t be rescued from the gallows.

We faced each other. Silence deafened. For the first time, I thought that she wasn’t the only person I was about to deal with. She had more shields. More masks. I saw laughter, tears, anger, disgust, smiles, struggling to view themselves all at the same time.

It turned scary. It turned horrifying. It turned illusionary. I had no control. I choked her to death.

Next day, I woke up smiling and elated. Stood in the same place and saw her smiling back at me, a pleasant one this time. I never knew that the other side of the mirror is all different but isn’t just a reflection.

I’m just one within me now.
