Body Without A Soul In Me

Nice to meet you Glad to have known you Keeping me clean all the time Keeping me alive for a lifetime. You dress me with everything Buying me expensive of anything You even put make ups on me Blowing, curling my hair to be me. You always talk to me whenever you're blue I can feel your tears as you hug me true I listen to you when you remember me Holding my body like a real person in me. Each year you buy a cake for me Like it's my birthday hailing in your shop All other occasions with fervor you treat me Like I'm your only honey in a coffee shop. You told me you have a girlfriend one time Loved her so much, more than me Then she lied to you more than one time You came back, repining, staring at me. Many years I stayed with you Because you wanted me to be with you I know when you are mad But I can avouch you're not that bad. Sometimes you kick the shop door Yelling, squealing louder than Dumbledore I was shaking when I see you crying I am broken too when I can't stop you sighing. Everyday and night, morn 'til midnight You come to say "hello" to me And vanishes like magic behind my sight Going out with your friends without me. Denying I don't feel anything for you Believing I'm just a fantasy of you I dream of you when you're sleeping Watching you in bed while I'm weeping. You don't know how it feels like to be solid Only in human form I look splendid Then one day I was sold to your neighbor Only to pay for the rent debtor. I was displayed across the street Fronting your spot where people used to shop and peep I can see you everyday so discreet Telling your friends I'm still yours to keep. Realizing one night you still wanted me Then you bought me back at a higher price To you your neighbor returned all of me And I thanked you for that, winning my heart again without compromise. Every morn and night, you always smile at me Kissing me, hugging me like the old times you watched over me How can I return the love you're giving me? I'm just a mannequin falling in love with you with no real beating heart inside of me. I'll die for you if you need me to 'coz I love you more than everything in me How can I prove my love for you? I am just a body without a soul in me.
