You Watch Yourself Move

You watch yourself move
Hands and legs.
Lips and lungs.
You walk. You wave.
You speak. You smile.
Mechanically.
By habit or construct,
The signal is sent
With no feedback
No sensation or sentiment:
Detached, disconnected,
Unfeeling, uncaring –
As if all that once lived
Inside you has been stilled
Or killed
