From yelling all around, 
My throat aches,
From the world around, 
My heart breaks.
My only hope is eventually
My life it takes.

When no one was there for me,
I welcomed the pain,
It kept my in place,
My own personal chain,
It wakes me from my nightmare
Of my heart being slain.

I have nowhere to go 
Being chained to the ground,
I have no one to go to,
I feel I can't make a sound,
Stuck in the middle of nowhere,
I fear I will never be found.

The tears escaping 
Cause my eyes to burn,
"I need someone there,"
My heart and mind yearn,
But the feelings go away 
And I have nothing more to learn.

I believe that there 
Is nothing left for me,
No more places to go,
No more people to see,
Instead I feel nothing,
I feel empty.

    Empty is how many of us feel, some days more than others. Writing out these feeling always helps me.
