Nothing

 

I tried solitude

And the long ethereal walks

In the woods

Tried sobbing night

After day

Clearing no cobwebs

Of remorse

I tried soaking

In a marathon swim

But tears refuse to heal

And water

Rebuffed a cleanse

I tried chatting cuties

Talking to anyone

About everything

And when  there was nought

I found a shrink

Who took the money

But not the pain

Nothing quenches

The flames

Nothing

Nothing fills

The voids

Since you walked

Away

    1. Haha. Yes. Full disclosure: one of your posts inspired me to write this. But I have come to realize that as humans, when it comes to moving on, our challenges are the same. What differs is our responses and reaction time. Thanks for taking time to read. Have a beautiful day!!

  1. This is amazing. I whole heartedly love this. I can’t tell you how many times I have been “here” where you’re trying to find relief but it can’t be found, drowning in pain and depression and wondering if it will ever subside. I can definitely relate to this. Thank you for sharing. Peace and love to you.
