Empty
Hi CS
I have lost the ability to feel. I’m empty. No emotions. Sad stories, bad stories are just stories. It doesn’t touch me like it used to. Other people’s pain are just pain. No empathy. I pretend I care. I’m living a lie. My words are empty words. I’ve been told I only think of myself. There is nothing to think about. I'm dead. I’ve lost myself. I know I should care. I can't. I don’t know where to start.
