Who I am, Who I was.
What I am now, is not what who I was.
Gone away did that part went.
Far away, did I have it sent.
No more again, I vowed that day.
I kept that promise strong
Untill that fateful day.
Retun again, brought back anew.
A different form, with a different shape.
Yet still it was me.
That part I knew.
But what was once old.
Has now become new.
Here I sit. Here I wait.
Wondering is this truly my fate?
Does the mirror show myself or you?
Who am I? Who are you?
What is that I see?
Is what you see me?
Or what you see is you?
Are you the real me?
And am I the fake you?
And here is the poem that appeared scattered across the pic Reflection I Reject. A bit of an internal monologue in Elaine about the nature of herself now. Sort of out there at the time writing it.

Intriguing and compelling - sentiments I had when I first encountered this work, though it slipped my review with the passing of time. Though, returning to it now, it still holds much of its original hold.

I recall that this was accompanied by art from the then :iconmishitaxd: (now better known as :iconkable1: and also responsible for that first work of Quinn Daniels and her own alter-ego, Hydie). The art [link] realises much of the poem's vison and focus in having Elaine, caught up in the supernatural world, having to wrestle and reflect on her newly emerging dark side in Helen Hyde and her addiction to the formula which triggers such a astonishing change. The cold lingering on questions of her truest form, their mingling and the existential frustration she feels in confronting that which is also undeniably herself too, is intriguing and echoes with a reader well, as it did with me. A good and accomlished effort still, complimented by vivid, and engagingly abstract art =).
