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




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
