Black Hole - Poem by Yiling Ding

I wish the pain would just stop
All the dreams that never will be
All the things I never can be
And all those expectations
They are energies once there
Now imploded within themselves

A black hole lives within me
Its incredible mass weighs down
My heart is forever heavy
And it is forever empty
Everything good and bright
Even the all-powerful light
Cannot escape the magnetic pull of
The black hole of all the things that were

The optimism's left me
The energy to live is gone
There is nothing I believe I can accomplish
There is nothing left to want
I cling helplessly to material things
They shatter at a touch
Nothing left can last or hold
It's crumbling all to dust

This black hole lives inside me
It's pulling me within
Slowly I am sucked away
And fall into its void
And nothing's left but emptiness
And one consistent moan
The dull but neverending cry,
Oh please, just let me die.
