Am I lost 

Gone 

Missing? 

 

Am I used 

Worn 

Cast off? 

 

Am I alone 

Isolated 

Deserted? 

 

One can take only so much before the destruction sets in 

Before the pain becomes too great 

Before the heart feels no more 

 

So what am I? 

 

I've Lost my true north 

I've been Used for others pleasure and set aside like trash 

I've never felt more Alone in a crowded room 

 

So what am I? 

 

Gone is where I am 

Worn is how I feel 

Isolation is my new home 

 

So what am I? 

 

Missing in my own skin 

Cast off because I'm no one special 

Deserted by everyone I hold dear 

 

So what am I? 

 

I'm in a dark place 

A hole so deep 

I'm buried inside myself 

Where no one can reach 

I believe in nothing 

And nothing believes in me 

 

So What am I? 

 

I'm not lost, gone or missing 

I'm not used, worn or a cast off 

I'm not alone, isolated or deserted 

I'm not... but then I am 

 

So you ask what am I? 

 

I am nobody, always have been 

I am nothing to anyone and everyone 

And with an open heart full of emotion 

I am but a contradiction to myself 

 

I am Numb 

I am an Empty shell of what I use to be 

I am...
