it’s always digging deeper

this overwhelming

vast vacuum

of emptiness

inside me.


am i missing

a piece of


or maybe it's just

a void

waiting to be

filled with the love

i long for.


i’d like someone

to tell me

“everything’s going to be okay”

and i believe it truly,

so that my void

doesn’t hurt me as cruelly.

    You are filling that void with words and your words are showing us that you will come out of that void into the wonder of the world.


    • Brycycle

      thank you so much

    • L. B. Mek

      'everything's going to be ok'
      because if you yourself can write it: then you yourself know it!
      keep believing, keep writing: stay healing,
      then hold out a helping hand to another drowning in the same pain you survived and find yourself: self-healing even faster

      • Brycycle

        thank you for those kind words
