Look deep into the mirror
And say, "I LOVE YOU,"
And immediately
An electric current will
Ripple throughout your soul
And burst through your eyes
Like shooting stars
Dancing across the skies
In ecstasy.
To tell your soul you love it -
Is like remembering
After being in a coma
For a hundred years.
Your face will beam the light
Of a hundred galaxies.
