"Be the change you wish to see in the world."

In the heartbeat of your desolute soul,

An invisible ache begins to envelope you,

Surrounds your identity and seeps in gradually,

Dulling the color that composes your core;

A physical void deepens inside you,

Grasps at the strings that hold you together,

And pulls leisurely,

As you fall into hollow, broken chaos,

That splinters and shatters with the sudden stop

From happiness to emptiness.
