Disembodied - ‘Expressionless’
My mind is blank, my heart is empty.
I’m dead for now.
I’ve let myself down again.
do you still believe in me like i believe
my parents took the dogs with them when they left and the cat is outside yet here I am
i watched the foundation burn - and still i stayed
i watched the torch you held - flicker and fade
betrayed by myself - for holding on so tight
now sadness sickens my heart and confusion blinds my sight
alone i feel so alone
maybe i’ll turn this feeling - into a wall of stone
and build it big and strong
i’ll build it around my heart - and let no one but you tear it apart
so here’s your invitation - i hope you will accept
remember the days in the sun - and promises kept
i’m writing these words from behind this wall.
