An Empty Shell of a Person

I’m so empty
Like a shell
Hard but hollow

I am dead yet I exist
Constantly swept away by the waves
Or wedged in the sand
Till someone or something picks me up
But throws me back down

I’m a shell of a person
Going through the motions
Flowing with the ocean
With no purpose or function

I’m an empty shell
As water fills my hollowness
So full that I start to sink
Deeper and deeper into despair

Till I hit rock bottom
And lay there
As the world continues to move on
But I’m stuck in the darkness of it all
