Emptiness (Orignal Poem)

What is this emptiness I feel?

Why this pain; Why is this real?

There’s a hole inside me.

One that I cannot fill myself nor rid myself of.

What is this emptiness I feel?

I am sad; I am depressed.

I can’t seem to get you out of my mind.

That emptiness is there, that void is there.

What is this emptiness I feel?

Do I need love? Do I need compassion?

I need understanding.

I need to obliterate this emptiness.

I need to say something; I need to speak!

But what was there to say?

Only that there were tears.

Only that they held each other close, long after it was over.

Only that forever hasn’t come yet.

 Only that what they shared that night was not happiness, but hideous grief.

What is this emptiness I feel?

It twist and turns.

My heart is on fire.

It’s a wasteland; It’s a battlefield.

What is this emptiness I feel?
