There’s a darkness in my heart, but you wouldn’t know from the light in my eyes. I feel a part of everyone but feelings for myself are fading fast. My memories are clear and sometimes agonizing but I hold onto them for the fear of being left empty and more lonely than I am. I fill my time with being everything to everyone so I’m not left to my own devices. Meditation helps hold back the pain that I can’t seem to get rid of. Sleepless nights are the reason I’ve seen the things that no one has answers for. They say time heals all wounds but will time find away to fill the emptiness I’ve come to call a friend?
