Misplaced Missive #31 – Shell

Blank ceiling silently staring down
at me
Lying motionless
lethargic
apathetic
static
It’s all white noise

Empty and colorless
What reason is there to continue?
No one gets the dreams they pursue
No one loves the people they do
No one enjoys the path they choose

How long to play pretend?
Fool my fellow actors
Lost in their own toneless read though
We’ve all given up on more

Halfway gone
and you can only tell on the inside
As long as the shell is there
Nothing else matters.
