Emptiness of the Soul


Emptiness of the Soul

Desolation in the form of forlorn emptiness

leaves me with the feeling of nothingness that

seems to envelop me in a deep sense of loss

that I am unable to escape even in the solace of sleep.

Lack of ambition, desire and willingness

color even my ability to breathe.

Involuntary bodily functions continue

although there is no energy to do so.

There is no loss only being alone

and unable to meet the masses on their level

racked with a fear that is unreasonable

And unable to understand why.

How will I survive when my insides

feel as though they have been shredded

and are ready to flush from my body

With the slightest provocation.

I am a little confused by your choice in writing since you profess Jesus. Life and Death is in the power of the tongue and the pen is mightier than the sword. What is positive about giving life to negative ideas, thoughts and beliefs? If your soul is empty then how can you know Jesus?

I think the poem is great and you are writing from experiences.

we all have fears and doubts at times and have had past experiences, so great poem

Even as a christian there are times for all of us that satan gets an opening and he always takes it. I am a christian and believe and love Jesus but i am human and as such i am not perfect. Thankfully He is always there for me especially when I am feeling lost.
