When with people,
It seems it’s filled.
When without anyone,
It suddenly exists!
Without it’s presence,
While we try to live in the present,
It appears from somewhere we’d like to forget!
Alone is not a safe spot for it.
To run away from the void,
We need to learn to escape it.
Even if it means to force yourself into the company of people.
The void is smarter when you’re alone & trying to be your own keeper.
So now when I think about it,
It gets bigger and darker.
It is inviting me in, to enjoy it, which seems like will last forever!
And I am standing on its edge,
Trying to ping and poke everyone I know.
Just to be saved from that darkness,
Which attacks me only when I am alone!
