What is left of us all…

Sometimes I feel like shutting down,
Just for a moment,
Just for one second,
Just a little…

See the world passing by:
the happy people
all alone, without time…
without a life outside themselves.

Everyone lives 
no one really sees. 
The world passes us in a blink
in a WhatsApp message.

I want the feelings gone,
and I want them back.
I want all at once
without masks and pretence.

I want bare honesty:
no hiding feelings,
no second thoughts,
just the truth behind everyone.

One day maybe, just maybe,
we could see our true souls,
just in a blink of an eye,
just like shutting down for a second…
