Void

There's a void,

In my heart,

My anger,

My pain,

Colliding like ocean waves,

This void,

Sucks out all,

My hopes,

My happiness,

Out of me,

Like black hole,

Sucks planets,

Sucks stars,

From the universe,

Music can no longer heal me,

I am so far gone,

I can't talk to anyone,

Without a fear gripping me that,

They will judge me,

They will misunderstand me,

They will think I am overreacting,

People say, "Sticks and stones may break me, but words will never break me!"

But words are the reason,

I am this far gone,

I am told,

I wallow in self-pity,

Maybe it’s true,

But how do I fill this void?

Sometimes I feel as if,

This void has made me,

Who I never was,

And I never wanted to be,

Rude-insensitive-mean,

That makes me hate myself even more,

This void is not what I wanted,

All I wanted was to be,

S       T       R      O      N     G!!

I want to prevent,

Myself from getting hurt,

NOT HAVE A VOID INSTEAD OF A HEART!
