Confronted with an eerie void,
Bliss of the life stood destroyed,
Stuck in barbed underbrush of quagmire,
Broken by misfortune, so dire.
Caught up in the violent maelstrom,
I squirm like a helpless worm,
Hopes blend in to void and disappear,
Like smoke from extinguished fire.
Expanding & devouring what is left of me,
Void bites like Piranha fishes in the sea,
I have wings to fly and roots to stay,
But I hang in the void, giving them all away.
“Fill me up”, vaccum in the heart cried,
But it’s pleadings are heartlessly denied,
I keep on sailing through the void,
Wandering like aimless & stray asteroid.
