it is an emptiness that fills your core and eats away at the soul within
it pours from the body and fills the room, it comes in waves that never cease to destroy the old sands on which they incessantly crash
Throbbing, Stabbing, Ripping apart the inner child who searches for something to fill the void she feels inside
a state of being in which life is a show you have been invited to watch from miles away
the light that flickers in the distance revealing glimpses of life as it will be
the drive to keep going when your world has fallen to shambles and your left to pick up the wreckage on your own
the warm tingle in your heart that appears during your darkest moments and reminds you someone cares and makes life worth living
devoting everyday to creating a fire out of the little light flickering in the distance, and letting it burn eternally melting the ice within.
