Shell

I

It's like I'll disappear as soon as I close my eyes

I feel like I've turned into someone that even I don't recognize

Sadly, I've become so small

I want to be rescued, but instead of sighing

I vomited up my loneliness, and just lay there, measuring it all up

II

Amidst this drop of time gone dry

My heart is drowning and writhing

These lies that make me dizzy

I took them and tore them up

And with that,

I became lost

In a world of thin darkness

III

For the sake of those whom I should trust

I chose to come here, a cage into which I've locked myself, and now

There's

No escape.

IV

Deep inside my parched throat

Lies the reason for this growing impermanence

Scared of the approaching tomorrow

I cower and collapse

But it seeks me out and whispers to me

This voice of thin darkness
