I am a robot

I am a robot,
Walking and talking,
But never feeling,
I can’t say I’m sad, I’m just empty,
So very empty and desolate,
My emotions used to flow through my body with every beat of my heart,
Now, my heart pumps nothing but blood,
My soul is empty, lost inside,
I want to be me again,
I want to let my emotions out,
I want to feel anger burning under my skin,
I want to feel disappointment consume me,
I want to feel pain engulf my body,
But they say I’m crazy,
So I take the pills,
And become a robot,
Walking and talking,
But never feeling,
Never feeling anything,
For the pills make me hollow,
And I fear I will crack,

This is so sad. Might I suggest Hiding the pills under your tongue and spitting them out when no one's looking? Nothing should make you feel this way. They shouldn't want you to be anything less than you. ZERO
