Shadows are following me home 
yet, I feel so alone 
I seek for attention
but no one sees me

I wonder if there are more people
like me

I feel like I am drowning
not able to breathe
the shadows are in control of my life 
I need someone 

Thunder wakes me up
and I notice 
I drowned many years ago 
but I am still able to live

this life
without a purpose
