Nothing

Something inside me died tonight
Though I’m not really sure what it was
My heart is still beating
My lungs still draw breath

Even so, something just isn’t the same anymore
The feelings I used to have are no longer there
In their place is an emptiness I cannot fill
A dark place I cannot illuminate

I don’t really know what’s wrong with me
Though it seems like forever
Since I cared about anything
Even about myself

I think I lost my soul tonight
I don’t know how or why it went away
All I know is that it is no longer here
I wonder if I am better off without it

Perhaps I am just not meant to have a soul
Maybe I was never meant to feel
Neither joy nor sadness means anything now
Now I am nothing, perhaps I always was
