Look at me.
Look at what I've become.
I'm torn
I'm shredded
I'm beaten
I've fallen
I'm but a shadow of myself
A hollow shell walking around

I should be dead.

Look in the mirror.
What do I see?
I see scars
I see bruises
I see rips
I see a soul
screaming out for freedom
But nobody answers

I'm not to be.

But I remember a time,
where you looked at me.
You saw promise
you saw happiness
you saw life
you saw love
A beacon of light
shining brighter than a star

Then, there was hope.

But it wasn't meant to be.
And everything good I had
went away with you.
And now I'm just a shadow of myself
I don't even know what I look like anymore.
And how can I compete with the world?
With others that can give you what you want?
I can't, and that's why I'll just stay in my corner
and I'll whither away, and be nothing but your shadow

Because My shadow follows my heart,
and it went with you too.
What else is there to do when everything you lived for walks away and moves on, and you're empty heart is all that's left?
