... Haunted Emptiness

As the sun rises,

like a zombie,

trapped in this dream

I watch life pass by;

I wandered alone,

fighting all that came in my way,

struggling to make sense of this war,
that does not seem to stop;

A shell of what i used to be,

I wear a mask to hide me from the vultures that prowl all around,
wanting something to chew on;

No emotion,

no pain and,

no happiness,

just a haunted emptiness;

Yelling and screaming,

hiding behind closed doors,

watching life pass by with my empty eyes;

Alone I sit,

in the grip of darkness,

as the arms of silence slowly engulf me,

a strange numbness takes over me..
