Gingerbread Girl

An outline
Not really edges
Eyes too hollow
Button nose
Even mouth
It was all there
An image fashioned
Copied not mirrored
It might have worked
To be fair it did but
Something was missing
Misplaced in the mixing
Something essential
A question forgotten
How do you feel?
The house she built crumbled
Of course it did
It was made of gingerbread.
