No emotions what-so-ever
Only an empty void
Filled with bitter darkness

Time flows as a roaring river
With me standing on the bank
Watching in silent despair

If only I could jump in the river
Following life as I ought to
As everyone streams by me

Instead, I stand silent
Unable to move
On the cursed riverbank
