Invisible Tears

It consumes all my thoughts
Takes over my bodily functions
It's overpowering
Ruling with society's corruptions
The darkness devouring

This overwhelming feeling of something much deeper than sadness
Tranquilizing my nerves, this alcohol's my one and only friend in the madness

This emptiness inside me
Longing to be filled
This void in my soul craving everything
But nothing can fill this dark hole inside me

All my desires and attempts to feel the warmth are in vain
My wounds have yet to heal
They say I'm insane
But this pain I can no longer conceal

I'm a lost soul reaching for help
Screaming at the top of my lungs
Yet no one can hear my cries
No one can see my internal injuries

Blood oozing it's way out my heart
This is my last resort
But it's okay I'm fine
And when you see me I'll smile

This poem is about: 
My family
My community
My country
Our world
