Swallowed in sadness,
Drowned in despair,
Turned around for help,
But no one was there.

There's a hole in my heart,
A cave in my bones,
Tunnels of crushed hopes,
And mournful tones;
Hope passes by,
but as I reach for it,
it withers and dies.

Shattered dreams,
Clashed, like slivers of glass,
Glitter the floor of my heart;
I need for this nightmare to pass.

Life is a cluttered place
of rotting memories,
When I try to restore them,
I just give up, my sorrows increase.
So what am I to do,
With this hole in my heart?
When I shove sadness down,
It flies of the chart!
Yet, I do have a friend,
That does help me cope,
Though I’m pummeled with depression,
I do have some hope.

Lego ergo sum (Latin—I read, therefore, I am)
The pen is mightier than the sword—unknown
Don't let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for believers in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith, and in purity—1 Timothy 4:12

Beautiful. I love it! The emotion is so authentic!
