Soulless Maybe

caffeinated and depressed I drag myself along

 

at this point I’m a stranger in the body I once loved

 

constant internal battle

 

the reflection feels old

 

useless

 

so I cut it

 

My thoughts aren’t thoughts anymore

 

they shout at me

 

the sun rises

 

it sets

 

the moon reveals itself

 

now I'm awake

 

I want more but I’m trapped

 

lost in who I was

 

the box is small

 

scavenging for those last pieces of myself

 

but my eyes are shielded

 

permanently gazed over

 

blind to what's to come

 

coffee as dark as I feel

 

I don't need saved

 

mind racing but my fingers struggle to follow

 

routines are lame

 

now I'm floating down the river

 

but I don't want to

 

begging to sink

 

who's stopping me

 

a bargain with my soul

 

to save me from myself
