Porcelain, but the eyes are real
She sees what no one else can
Fiery red that frames her face
Painted lips to fool any man

China doll, she’ll come alive
When he least expects it
Scaring the blood from his veins
With eyes of pure electric

Cowering, he begs for life
She just stares, no emotion showing
And as he breathes his final breath
Will he die, without even knowing?

That it wasn’t her at all, oh no
He led a life, nightmarish
His own fear is what did him in
And caused this man to perish

Porcelain, but the eyes are real
Watching and patiently waiting
Be careful, what next, you will do
For her face is so very captivating
