What do you call one who has lost themselves?

No longer themselves, lost behind the mask

They place upon themselves to make it through society.

What becomes of their reality?

Falling into the nothing that they've become,

Lost inside of the abstract norm.

A ghost, a mimic, a shade of a human.

Empty, a void, when you no longer know who you are,

You simply become an abyss.
