Feelings of depression
Consume my empty soul
No one knows the sense of loss
My life… a dark, black hole.

A painted face of smiles and grins
I force upon myself
Inside I’m crying, feeling lost
No one is there to help.

Though showered with affection
I can’t seem to fill the void
The voices that dare speak to me
Cannot drown out the noise.

Day to day, I wander aimlessly
So empty, feeling lost
Incapable of coping
Life comes at such a cost.

I struggle, so uncertain
My demons won’t let go
The doubt and shame that lingers
No one will ever know.
