The Thing I Can't Live Without

I couldn't tell you

The void inside my heart

Or explain why I feel this way

I have everything a person could want

A family that loves me

A husband that adores me

A bright future

A clever intellect

I suffer from no lack of hunger

Or places to lay my head

There is nothing I fear of losing

And yet there is a viscious hunger

That ravages inside me

I do not know what I seek

Yet I know I cannot live without it

Every now and then it hits me

Like a forgotten nightmare

Coming to drag me back to the darkness

Things I used to find joy in

Are like unfamiliar faces now

Maybe one day I'll find it

The thing I can't live without
