Hero (Blogophilia 7.6)

He looks like a hero
Standing behind me
Crack in the mirror hides
Fangs drawing innocence.

A twist of fate brought him
Saying he'll comfort and console
In his strong arms

An affair of unequals
Exchanges of power
And affection
But never love.

Vanished now into the mist
Caged with his demons
Leaving me cracked
In the mirror image.
