Trigger Warning: Depression


Suspended in unfeeling void

Voices muffled

Flavours dulled

A solid ghost


Where am I?

Who am I?

I exist but I’m not alive

Just eat, drink, sleep, survive


Someone’s looking at me

A question, they can’t know

I consciously twist my mouth

To approximate a smile


They seem sad

How do I respond?

Empathy is a foreign concept

How can I help when I’m hollow?
