She looks like you

She talks like you

Nodding

Smiling

Agreeing

Every day that has passed.

 

She nods without fail

With a smile worn out

Agreeing to silently disagree

Every day that has passed

Every day that is to come.

 

She who is you

Never weeps

 Nor frowns

You play your part

Perfect in front of your audience.

 

You nod

You smile

You agree

Though your world is falling apart

 

And those eyes who scrutinize you

From day to day have not noticed

Undoubtedly they never will

Left to speculate

Over who you are.
