A Deep Hole

There is an empty void
No one person or thing can fill.
Something deep inside
That longs to find success.

A part of my soul
That aches to reach fulfillment.
A part of my whole
That craves sustained happiness.

Do I constantly create problems
So that I have an excuse?
Or do I stumble upon misfortune
And face constant abuse?

Whatever the problem,
For now my soul has this void.
I'll keep searching for answers
Until this void is destroyed.

Ps. I wrote this tonight. I've been feeling really out of touch and miserable for a month or so now. I was hoping that putting my feelings in writing would help me get a handle on things. I hope you enjoy <3 <3
