There is this hole in me and I can't fill it.
I have shoved everything into it,
but it is still there big, vast and overbearing.
I threw in school, work, friends,
and family but none of it worked.
I even tried pretending it wasn't there,
but a hole this size can't be ignored.
It seems to grow daily.
Consuming me more and more.
Pretty soon I will not exist
and there will just be the hole.
I have to fill this hole.
I can't let it take me over.
I just can't.
