This feeling of nothingness

has swallowed me up,

lying in the darkness

I could sense it build-up.

Thoughts then flooded

my mind of a disturbing nature,

leaving me to question

myself and my behaviour.

For how much longer

can I go on like this,

living a life that

I would no longer miss.

Help is at hand, but I fear

it may be too late,

I am just going through

the motions in a life I hate.

Dreams I once had,

have disappeared

into the distance,

what I am left with has me

questioning my existence.

I am praying hard that

I may come to my senses

so the ones I love will not

have to suffer the consequences.

  1. I admire and appreciate all of your work, but this one is truly sublime.
    Hauntingly sad and brutally honest. I only wish I had written it 🖤🖤

      1. Not at all. They were sincerely meant. 🖤
