Life is empty

It is a void of nothingness

It can’t be filled with anything

Since my positive thoughts said goodbye


Life is meaningless

Since they went away

They were what made me happy

When I was feeling down


I can not think

I can not try

It has only been a day

Since they went away


I can not feel emotion

No matter what

If they came back

I might be cured

If only I could be healed

But I can not try

I will not be hurt 

By anyone ever again


I will only show a smile

When I am trying not to cry

I will put on a brave face

Even though I am dying inside

I suffer in silence

While I try

To tell my friends what’s wrong

But all I say is I’m fine
