I'm sleepwalking 

through life.


I've fallen into a cycle

of unconscious existence. 


Sometimes I try so hard

and end up failing. 


I beat myself up when 

I don't meet my expectations.


So I've just given up;

now I lead a comatose life.


My heart is in a dormant state

to avoid the pain. 


My motions, involuntary,

my feelings, numbed.


It's better to live this way

than risk the hurt.
