your words
contrived for no one
but deaf ears
the sorrow only yours
pathetic and meaningless
in your slow decline

this masked shadow of lies
consumes you
like your own truth
meant for you alone
without substance or content
of any reason
but to serve you

this manufactured sadness
hollow and deep
drags you under
beneath even you
as the shell you have become
meaningful to no one
