My eyes slowly open wide
my eyes see the blackened room around me.
It's time to start another day,
Its time to fake another me.
Another day of the same old things,
another day of the same routine
My feet touch the frigid tile
my eyes look in the mirror to see me.
My eyes see nothing familiar,
It's the me lost within every lie.
I tilt my head right,
I tilt my head left.
I see what's wrong,
I reach up and grab that
jadded, faded, shaded black veil.
Pulling it over my face, I see
the me I see-
has never been me.
