Emptiness:My Companion

by greg battistone
i dont find it funny anymore
that i live a life of illusion
try to get back to the life i once knew
but it keeps mounding, and i dont know what to do
and i feel im all alone.

and its in ongoing cycle
where i just keep getting lost
and i dont know which path to follow
when all others seemed to pure, but swallow
and now i have to second guess.

and in these times
i feel of nothing
darkness casts a shadow on my heart
and i let myself grow so far apart
from everything that kept me living.

how can i be satisfied
when everything has lost meaning
and everyone seems to go their own way
and im just left sitting helpless today
debating whether i should leave this life
and it hurts.
