"Skeleton"

Feeling like a skeleton
Everything that was important
Ripped from me
Delusional, disattached
Walking around
Feeling like an alien
Cannot recognise anymore
The image in the mirror
My smile becomes blurry
And then lost; never to be found

You think you know me?
You have no idea
My demons digest me
While I am still alive
Walking alone, not wanting company
Humans cannot be friend with skeletons,
Right?

Feeling like a skeleton
Everything that was important
Ripped from me
Delusional, disattached
Walking around
Feeling like an alien
Cannot recognise anymore
The image in the mirror
My smile becomes blurry
And then lost; never to be found

The only thing that is left
From my dearest dreams
Are ashes falling on me
Burning my skin
Not letting me forget
I will never escape
This dark prison

Feeling like a skeleton
Everything that was important
Ripped from me
Delusional, disattached
Walking around
Feeling like an alien
Cannot recognise anymore
The image in the mirror
My smile becomes blurry
And then lost; never to be found

Hello, I am a skeleton
If you see me
Runaway as quick as you can
Don't feel bad
Don't look back
Warn the others
I don't want to infect you
But most importantly

I don't want you to be me.

The End
