Dark clouds
Hang over me
Blank eyes stare
Nothingness all around

My body numb
As if I’m not here at all
Tears are buried
Too deep

I could let it
Take me now
But the human part
Pulls me forward

I stay—
For them

  1. Hi Josslyn! Sorry it took a while to get around to your quadrille. What a heart-breaker it is.
    You’ve really conveyed that dark feeling of ‘nothingness’, where you’re so numb and you’ve got to the point where tears can’t come but you keep hanging on for those you love.
