While I was sitting, I had a thought; it crossed my mind and disappeared

 

It was something important, but not quite there; I lamented the departure of its silent train

 

As I was walking, I felt my feet stall, and my eyes glazed over as I stood still and alone

 

I couldn’t shake the feeling of a void being opened, and the emptiness felt like dreaming awake

 

I was disconnected and depressed as the world went on spinning and life danced away

 

There seemed to be no purpose, no objective for me; it was as though I had reached the dead end of a cliff

 

Screaming would have done me good, but I couldn’t find the nerve; I knew no one would hear or care enough to listen

 

Crying might have helped, but I didn’t feel compelled; there was nothing left inside me from which to squeeze a tear

 

I couldn’t hurt, I couldn’t hate, I couldn’t feel anything — except the sense of being vacant, being utterly condemned
