My emotions drag as slow as a humid day,

Unable to stir the leaves on the trees, searching for a searing breeze.

The stillness and emptiness hang around me, like a scorching hot May day.


My pulse is slow and pumps dull numbness, nothingness.

I can't feel, a vacuum of grey matter is stifling my still veins.

Music, love, and life now fail to move me, my senses rot and I radiate walking deadness.


Flatlining, my heart would be dead and still on screen.

I need to feel; the draught of emotion scares me but I can't muster a word to speak.

I'm flatlining, ebony emptiness blocks me, I'm flatlining, I've lost all and there is nothing to dream.
