Life Is As Life Will Be. This is the truth about my life. If that is even what you can call this existence...

Presented life.

Only to wish,

Every single day.

To wish for death to take hold.

To feel so empty.

So empty that nothing.

Not a thing is satisfying.

Life is as life will be.

Mine is torture.

Can be nothing but torture.

Happiness is not for the damned.

But how can one,

One that doesn’t believe,

That doesn’t follow a scripture

Like the lemmings that live today,

How can one like be damned?

Never to be happy?

Always to feel as if,

As if there is a hole,

A great gaping hole,

One that was once filled,

But that is forever to remain empty?

I do not hold these answers.

I do hold them as much as I seek them.

These answers are none I wish to hear.

As much as I feel that love is not mine to feel.

Life is as life will be.

Torture unto torture unto torture.

Pain unto pain.

Emptiness in a shell.

Forever empty.

Forever pained.

Forever tortured.

This is how I live.

Whether I want to or not.

It is not my choice to be made.

At least,

Not anymore.

Life is as life will be.

Forever out of my grasp.
