Filling the Void

By Leonard Pigg

Lost soul staring deep into mine
She sees the sadness
Mistakes it for emptiness
Tries to connect
Sees the depth
Of the overwhelming sorrow
The hidden grief
A vortex of emotions
It's too much for her
Sometimes, too much for me
She runs away
Nothing new, a typical reaction
There are pitfalls even demons would avoid
This is my paradigm, my penance
The reality of me
Life without feeling
Moving forward
Numb to all obstacles
Feelings are random
Welcome at times
Move towards a better day
An even better future
Create a heaven
Amid the hellishness around you
Choose to be better
