And you plundered away the last hope
that was flickering frantically
in my darkest of nights
with a shimmering flame
and that tall resilience
in a whiff, you crushed it
against that gray wall of nothingness
and now my heart is a vacuum
listlessly floating away into oblivion
unsure what it awaits for
as you watch from a distance
with meandering eyes
displaying callousness
pretentiously wondering
what went wrong
with a dandy person like me
