Refections

Who are you?
Have we met before?
I don’t think that we have,
I mean I think that I would have remembered if we had.
Yet you look some what familiar…
I can’t quite place where I’ve seen you before.

Why do you wear so much make up?
What are you trying to hide?
I’m sure you’re just as beautiful with out it.
And your hair?
What would it look like with out all that hair spray?
Would I recognize you then?

Who are those people around you?
Are they your friends?
They don’t look like the kind of people that I would want to be around.
Are you part of the in crowd?
Then why do you look so sad?
Shouldn’t you be happy that you fit in?

Who’s that you’re kissing?
Is he supposed to be your boyfriend?
But didn’t I see him kissing that other girl over there a few moments ago?
He seems a little too posessive for my tastes.
See how he holds you to his side?
So tight so that you couldn’t walk alone if you tried?

Who are you?
What have you become?
You cry yourself to sleep most nights.
And yet you walk around with that phoney smile.
Do you think it makes people like you more?
Burrying your pain is not the answer, it can’t be.

Oh my god.
I just realized where I’ve seen you before.
This morning in the bathroom.
You were the one watching me in the mirror.
Standing there your pain leaking out of your eyes,
Trying to hide it from me.

I know who you are…

You’re my reflection…
