Emptiness – Poem

There’s no place to suffer
no going away
It’s dark in here
all of my days.

Nothing to feel
and nothing to see
except for the haze that is following me.

Everything feels wrong
but nothing seems real
everything’s distorted and out of focus to me.

No shining lights or kind words felt,
the beauty of life is wasted on me.

I feel nothing inside 
and I’m drifting away
the emptiness inside widens by day.

The dark hole that has swallowed me up
has taken my life
and all that I hold dear, in my mind.
Detached from everyone and my thoughts
this emptiness inside has really got me caught.

Nothing is what I continue to feel
until this depression has shifted from me.
