TO FILL THE VOID

I GO THROUGH THE DAY ALWAYS FEELING LIKE SOMETHING IS MISSING
A VOID THAT NEEDS TO BE FILLED
I CAN'T SEEM TO FIND ANYTHING OF SUBSTANCE
I GET TATTOOS AND PIERCINGS
I CHANGE MY HAIR OR MY CLOTHES
EVERYTHING ABOUT ME SCREAMS THAT THERE IS SOMETHING WRONG
BUT NO ONE IS THERE TO CONSOLE ME
DO THEY NOT CARE, DO THEY NOT WISH TO BE INDULGED IN MY HEARTBREAK
OR HAVE I JUST BECOME SO CONVINCING IN MY FAKE SMILE
MY FACADE THAT RARELY CRUMBLES
MY GENUINE INTERIOR ONLY REVEALING ITSELF AS I CRY IN THE SHOWER
WATER CRASHING ON MY FACE
OR AS I TOSS AND TURN WHILE I SLEEP...WHENEVER I CAN SLEEP
DREAMS AND NIGHTMARES FILLING MY UNCONSCIOUS
WHEN I WAKE, FEELING SO SAD USELESS
MY BODY FEELING HEAVY...DRAINED...HALF HEARTED

    Very nice poem here, again the subject of your poem is conflicted and we are all caught along for the ride. You do a good job of bringing us into a world and making us see what the subject sees, the situation, the problem, the hopelessness... Good Job Valerie!!! MC

    Yes... I , and a lot of other poets, identify with this lovely descriptive verse of the great 'search' for purpose and validation of our existance. We have poetry to express all these things, and we have a God that sees us unique and beautifully made xx

    LOL, by the way I noticed my sister on the bottom commenting your poems. she is not so much of a nut head like me.... but, I'm a nut head in a good way.... this is me, drained and heavy, many days I wake up to a void I can not explain. I have problems sleeping, and still everyday I have to survive knowing I'm the only one who knows how to fill in the void. and how do i fill in the void you ask???? Well i go about my day, as if nothing is wrong or missing, but the smiles I lend or pretend fill the void only I know if.... always~ Linda

    Good morning Valerie. A tough image you walk around for, is that the reason you fill your body with art. _Does it fill the void in you? I know how it is to have no one comfort my fake smiles. Or ease my broken heart. I send you some soup mail. ~*~SKAT
