Look in the mirror,

tell me what do you see?

Is it insecurity?

Tell me sweetheart,

are you just like me?

Can stomach

the image you see?

 

Tell me sweetheart,

are you just like me?

The plate they set on the table

in front of you, for you to eat.-

will the food be consumed

or is i for the drain?

 

Days pass

and I wonder sweetheart-

do you ever eat

Or are you like me,

counting down the days

until it's only infinite sleep.

 

But tell me sweetheart,

are those sunken in cheeks?

It looks to me

like your just bones-

your skin stretched to keep them in.

 

And I'm looking in the mirror

so let me ask you this...

Sweetheart are you me?
