The Feeling Of Emptiness

© Janieta Lister
I look into a broken mirror,
I seek to see why I am still living.
when I look around all I can see,
is darkness and pain...

my chest is tight, I can hardly breath.
I feel empty and broken,
I feel like a monster is trying to escape.
I don't know which way to go...

I am crying but only dry tears,
dust on my face and sores on my mind,
I do not speak nor do I try,
I have a million times.

when I speak, silence over take,
I can scream and still no one will hear.
I am invisible, no one can see,
I have pain inside, please let me free.

before I save myself,
and death is my way,
not long from today,
I am seeking my way...
