  A bitter heart beats in my chest,
a life goes on alone,
my soul no longer at its side
with happiness unknown.

I feel no more the rush of joy,
and yet I feel not pain.
Dead to all, I am a corpse;
I wish to feel again.

I try to wake my sleeping heart
by rousing it with hate.
I'm met with only stubborn void;
I fear it is too late.

For what will bring me back to life?
The answer I must bear;
this shriveled thing that is my heart
can't feel enough to care.
