Full of emptiness

Can't explain this empty feeling
When the room is full
Crowd suffocating my thoughts
Open my eyes but faces are blurred
Vague expressions
Unfamiliar voices
Laughter rings
But I'm lost to the humor
For this dark cloud suppresses all life
Causing happiness to vacate
Leaving shadows to embrace the light
So this world remains unseen
For no joy or beauty can penetrate these walls
I continue to look around
In the shade of my misery
Seeing only
Vague expressions
Unfamiliar voices
And hearing the humorless laughter of my being
