Hollow whispers in the air,

Soundless music I can’t bear.

Is it real?

Am I real?

An impaired heart that never heals.

I can’t fathom being free,

It’s something that’s not meant for me.

I tell myself it’s just a phase,

Where’s the exit to this maze?

My soul is broken on its own,

I’m surrounded, yet alone.

Floating aimlessly in here,

Inside a labyrinth of fear.

Inferior and insecure,

Lacking anything that’s pure.

Blaming others for my flaws,

With a heart mourning a loss.

For my identity’s what passed away,

Forever gone another day.
