Hollow

***

The bright smile from my lips
had vanished;
The confidence I built
had perished;
The hole inside me
keeps on growing;
And the darkness
keeps on spreading.

Without knowing how or why,
I reached the edge;
And from the sea below,
I saw my previous image;
Her pretty smile
Drew me closer,
but looking at her
Made me bitter.

My present self
Isn’t what it used to be,
So I chose to fall,
Ending my agony.
