Lights out!

I can feel the lights going off inside of me as the darkness starts to crawl in.

And I shut down for the care is gone and in its place is a girl no one knows.

There’s no joy in her eyes or her smile and if you stare hard enough you will see the emptiness in her eyes.

The girl I used to be is locked up in cell wishing she could come out but the world has shut her down and so she gave up the fight of wanting the joy in life.

She floats around the shell of the person she used to be.
The helpful, joyful, caring person gone in seconds and trapped for a lifetime.
