Empty soul

Deep down in my darkest soul
There is a strange unknown hole
It housed a small part of me
Which has gone and ceased to be
A part which died long ago
It made me shine and laugh and glow
But down blackness holds my heart
Kills my smile and tears me apart
Yet I hide the emptiness with many masks
Till one day I forfil my task
That'll fill this space inside of me
Release my soul and set it free

Think was feeling a bit down in general at the time but don't know for
sure.
