I’m desolate.

There’s nothing else to say.
There is nothing inside of me.

Nothing. Zip. Zero.

I’m void.
I can’t feel.
My brain feels



Almost asleep.

Oh, how I wish I were asleep.
Locked up inside
A different world to explore.
I might feel something

Else than

Hollowness. Emptiness.
The worst part is
Not being able to feel


Or alone.
Just vacancy

Inside of

I used to feel like this everyday! I had a depression problem and often had self-injuring and suicidal thoughts, though never carried through with any of them, thank God! The ONLY (and i do mean ONLY ) reason I came out of that was because I asked God to forgive me and pull me out of it. To feel his love and let it warm up and thaw out my frozen heart. And the crazy thing is, he loved me enough to do it. Even though all of my thoughts were 'Oh God! Why are you letting this happen to me!? Why can't everything just be okay?!' He still brought me through, no matter that i blamed him for everything. It was amazing. This is a really good poem that many can relate to. Keep up the good work! :)
