There is something in nothingness
And nothing in everything
How does it feel to be hollow inside?
To feel nothing in everything
To feel the lack of something beneath
To be void of emotions?
Is it a gift or curse to feel nothing at all?
It’s a gift when you’re going through hell
And a curse when you’re in heaven
But when sadness used to be comfort
Than the laugh you let out?
Promises meant to be broken
For whoever thought we would be here?
Here where everything is hollow
And I’m just a human on autopilot
A human corpse
It’s the way I can’t fathom
why I can’t see light at the end of the tunnel
And I’m drowning.
It’s the ocean and I’ve only learned to swim
in a swimming pool.
