Capgras syndrome is a delusional misidentification syndrome, wherein people close to the patient are believed to be replaced by an identical impostor. There are known cases where a patient will also have the belief time has been somehow changed, therefore this character also has a fear of time and is the same character in ‘Chronomentrophobia’.


This substitution
Is no delusion
A replication
No longer emotion

You march like clockwork machines
Fake waxwork figurines
Sticking to a prescribed routine
I am your vaccine

This substitution

Safety in the habitual habit
The monotonous
And mundane
I know its all a lie

Time distorted by the missing years
Incarcerated by wheels and gears
Encapsulated by sphericity
No longer a grip on reality

You are not who I once knew
You’ve been replaced by something new
The summation of all I’ve feared
The ones I’ve loved have disappeared
