The Void


I didn’t notice the void settling in,

No eyes, no nose but a big grin

Every ounce of my being was taken

From my slumber I did not want to waken


Feeling is a long distant memory

Any feeling, not even sensory

Just a constant reminder that I am here

Among nobody dear


Vain attempts to feel something

Pain from hurting

Roars from starvation

What will stop this frustration?


Basic functions become chores

Outside, showering, closing doors

Pulling plugs, changing clothes

It seems anything goes,


“You respond quick”

Hope arises with every click

But I have nothing else to do

Except wait for the select few


“Can’t you go see you parents?”

I always get embarrassed,

No I can’t and my brother neither

He’s moving, he needs a breather


Other members, let’s see

Who else could it possibly be?

One side of the family is in mourning

My nephew, ladybirds we kept hoarding


You see I am very much alone,

Every time I message I hear you moan

And I’m sorry, for everything

You will no longer have to hear my ping
