Inhumanly Friend

i am a puppet
with severed strings
my head chiseled of wood
my limbs molded rubber
words roll off my buttered tongue
and i scare everyone away

i am a hollow lump of clay
shaped with nimble fingers
i am someone's masterpiece
left as someone's mantle piece
waiting to decay

i am not what you think i am
truly i am more
but you will never know it
because i am a toothless grin
peering out of the shadows
i will never speak
so you won't know i'm here

don't be scared away
you are my only friend
and i will probably be
the only fleshless man
that you will ever know
