Anna’s Mirrors

There is legend

about a girl named

Anna

who was not sane-

and one day her family sent her away to be cured

at a hospital

on a road

out in the middle of nowhere.

There were bars on all of the windows.

 

The Doctors

who were not sane

locked her in a room full of mirrors

and the things that lived in Anna’s Brain

the things that drove her insane

went to live in the mirrors

where it was dark and quite and they didn’t have to listen to

Poor Anna’s Brain scream and scream and scream anymore.

 

One day

for no reason at all

the people died and the hospital died

and so did the things that hid under the beds

and in the closets.

 

Now Anna’s Mirrors hang from walls

in houses and libraries and shops and hotels

and

some are hanging in buildings with rats in the walls.

 

 If by an unlucky

turn of fate

you find

one of the cool dark mirrors that hung in poor Anna’s room

in the hospital where the Doctors were not sane

and you press your ear to the glass

you can  hear

something

moving around in there

and that something

that was  never sane

used to live inside of

Poor Anna’s Brain

  1. Ooh, this is a creepy one. Poor Anna I guess this is too far fetched…there was a time when those psychologically impaired where locked away in dark stone buildings with bars on the windows and subjected to God knows what in the name of treatment.

    Where did you find that image…it has so much depth and many stories to tell.
