My mind is scribbled so my mouth makes no sense 
My smile is fake 
A blurry smear on parchment so thin 
My eyes are hollow, and dull

The body I live in is not all there
Somehow who I used to be is torn from its original book 

I know all that I am 
But I've become a reflection I don't recognize 
From a three year old's gaze
Everything seen must be the truth 

Standing up with the legs I don't possess
I tape myself to the wall
For the world to see
