The Cost of Living

In the sparkle of the mirror
Brilliant and glowing silver
A dull face looks back at me
Something missing in the eyes
A bottomless void of darkness
Stares through itself
And back again
A lust for life and purpose
Gone
A spark, a flame of interest
Gone
Emotion and feelings
Gone
Empty of the human component
Life stolen
When the cost of living
Became my soul
