Void

Vacant,Nothing fills the space you left,I carry you in my memories, Even though you’re still very much here,Hollow,Is how I am left after you,Wondering how I got it so wrong,Trying to understand the initial appeal,Empty,With so many whirling thoughts,Spinning, spiraling in my mind,Wondering how to feel, how to think,What to feel and what to think,Yet,…
