The Mirror

The person staring back at me
Controls my every move
Like we’re playing a game of Simon says
She twists my world
And bends me backwards
Ruins everything I have ever know
Ever loved
She laughs inside
While outside I die
Slowly sinking
Waisting day by day
Will she ever stop?
Will I ever be free
Of these strings
She plays me like a puppet
Makes me complete her every thought
Makes me into someone im not
This person im forced to see
This person is me
