When I hold someone close,
Embrace them in my arms,
Feel the surge of passionate energy through my veins,
My fingers glide against the universe of your body,
I realize my universe is dead and empty.

I could have everything I ever wanted,
But the chambers of my soul deny the simple human right,
And this drastic emptiness is caused by no one other than myself.

It takes happiness to know happiness,
It takes love to know love,
And I’m so loved,
But all I feel is darkness.

It’s cold here,
In this state,
In this world,
In this heart,
I want happiness so bad,
But where do I start.

It’s a beautiful aesthetic,
Being lonely and empty,
You are always filling others’ voids,
While you self destruct.

I guess at this unknowing,
This emptiness,
With nothing but hope,
And unconscious regret.

In bed with lovers,
Feeling as close as strangers,
Surround by love,
But filled with anger.

This is the danger,
Of loving with no heart,
I was destined to fall,
From the very start.
