Blank ceiling silently staring down
It’s all white noise
Empty and colorless
What reason is there to continue?
No one gets the dreams they pursue
No one loves the people they do
No one enjoys the path they choose
How long to play pretend?
Fool my fellow actors
Lost in their own toneless read though
We’ve all given up on more
and you can only tell on the inside
As long as the shell is there
Nothing else matters.
