I Am an Empty Shell

I am a turtle without a shell,
Without a place to call home.
I am forever lonely
With no one to grasp onto,
To hold me tight, safe.
Is it sad to want someone
When they will never ever
Want you?
Is it hard to hope for the impossibilities?
Oh, but it is so easy to cry,
So easy to lose yourself in moments of time.
So easy for you to dream of fairytale endings,
Things that only could happen in the imagination.
It's lovely to dream
Because of all the possibilities.
I am an empty shell,
But I can dream and dream and dream.
