Trapped

Location

I am living

Yet not really living

 

I am laughing

But not really laughing

 

I am seeing

But not truly seeing

 

I am a monster

Trapped in despair

 

I am breathing

Yet not wanting to breath

 

I am walking

But stumbling along the way

 

My hands reach out to touch you

But I feel nothing

 

I am a demon

Trapped in this body

 

I am loving

But not being loved

 

I am hoping

But wishing for failure

 

I am smiling

Yet frowning underneath

 

I am a corpse

Trapped among the living

 

I am me

But wishing to be someone else

 

I am here

Yet dreaming of being elsewhere

 

I am talking

But no one is listening

 

I am dead inside

Trapped in this useless life
