... emptiness ... despair ...

Following these feelings of unknown nothing
My heart seems broken, my mind slowly rotting
All of this from an unknown fear
If it continues, the end seems so near
Where does it come from?
Where does it reside?
The unanswered questions that help it to hide
Somewhere within me, within my soul,
But why, I tell you, I do not know!
I do not know why these feelings of despair
Float around me, affect how I fare
Ask me why I feel so much sorrow,
I don’t know why,
for it will appear tomorrow, today and yesterday too
So when this feeling comes it’s nothing new.
I’m used to it now that feeling of emptiness, despair,
I know it far too well, for it’s always there…

a great grief.... a big loss
an unexpected ill
I thought each is enough to kill
with faith, patience & smile
is all it takes to heal

Not without reason does one feel
A sense of belonging to someone

Between gaining and losing
There's just a moment
Don't refuse..... go ahead
