A bottomless pit
It’s been happening, my life’s daily chores are becoming my everyday only task. I feel as though I walk around lifeless, aimlessly, repetitively. My heart beating, yet walls are hallow. What once gave me purpose and meaning, no longer motivating me to get up in the morning.
“I’m dead”, I tell my alive self. All of life’s temporary pleasures no longer able to distract me in my own misery. Nothing no longer satisfying me, It’s an empty pleasure that brings me a numbing feeling. Tell me now, when does this switch flicker on? How can I reboot?
Numb, blank and sedated. I currently reside in a dark hole, whose pebbles when thrown down the well never reach the bottom of the pit.
