Shell of Nothingness

Have you ever felt there is nothing?

Like everything is not real?

Like if you look away long enough

all your happiness would disappear?

Have you ever felt like nothing?

Like a numbness without emotion?

Like an empty cast that hides all the hurtful insults and commotion?

Have you ever compared yourself to an empty shell?

And wondered why it’s empty?

Is it The shell is a beautiful piece of work

And everyone just gives it envy?

How come everyone puts it through hell

just because it’s different?

Maybe the shell is empty

because it hates the things put in it.
