to you i am a face
a wallpaper in ‘n ruined house
you see only the cracks
my smile is lost to you

the light is so dim in the ruined house
and i am hidden from your blind eye
because you chose to see only in light
and forgotten what treasures in darkness may lie

i am but a Mona Lisa forgotten on a wall
while in louvre my doppelgänger smiles
at fools with blinded minds
