I am hollow,
full of nothing,
cold and static,
aching in silence

No new addiction
can cover up
this creeping thing,
voiceless and cunning

It slithers in 
and somehow eats
feelings of home,
until I am homeless

It climbs inside
mute and deadly,
pressing down
with paralyzing poison

Until I am hollow,
full of nothing,
cold and static,
aching in silence

    I have suffered depression and I understand this poem. Stay strong and positive and seek professional help and I hope you all the best.
