Emptiness

Tears in my eyes refuse to roll down, there's a lump in my throat. There's a voice in my head. Trapped in ambiguity and conundrum, I lose faith in myself. Everyday's like a challenge to me. I am unprepared . I am daunted by the unpredictability of the circumstances. I am unable to rise from the fall. I want to shout and scream and release that lump that's stuck in my throat for so long. I am busy somedays and empty always, I am happy somedays and devastated all days. All I seek is love , a little crumb of it is enough. I can satiate myself from whatever I receive. I yearn for a touch , some warmth. Some kisses. Some hugs. Can someone please hold my hand and take me away from this gruesome reality. All I need is a drop of love to quench my empty heart.
