is there a reason why my heart beats?
is there a reason why my lungs continue to draw breath?
the air that keeps me alive,
the blood that flows through my veins,
nothing is enough to fill the space within me,
an empty vacuum of nothing
that used to be something
that used to be everything
but my soul is missing
and, with it, i am simply alive
because my body refuses to let me die
and end this cursed life
