Full But Empty - Poem by Broken Angel

Haven'd been able to say,
truly how i feel lately,
'though i am full, i am empty',
i finally figured that's how i feel.
It's hard to understand,
how can one be full?
but empty at the same time?
I'll explain,'s like this,
i have my family and friends,
everything i'd ever want and need.
But there's just a hole,
in my heart,
that hasn't been filled.
I've searched,
high and low,
still never finding what i want,
to fill that gap.
But one day,
when i thought,
i found it,
i still have this pain,
even though the hole is filled.
So that's why i say,
'though i am full, i am empty'

    a wonderful poem
    exploring the meanign and purpose
    of life
    and what happens when the meaning
    and purpose
    at the moment
    elude the soul
    keep up the good work
