The emptiness I feel inside,
voices singing in my head.
Emotions running Topsy-Turvy.
The night obstinate to give birth to dawn.
No shoulder to cry on.
Emptiness eats me up like locust.
Like a city deserted by her citizens.
No ear to whisper to.
My thoughts, my companion.
Married to my pillow.
I look up to the stars for answers, the Moon keeps mum.
Walking down the road, I hear no footsteps to go on the journey with me.
The walls laughs as I pour out my heart.
This torture worse than a thousand whips.
No birds to sing me a lullaby.
Drunk in the wine of melancholy.
I sink in the abyss of despair.
Who will pull me out of dungeon.
The fortress of my world has been breached.
My heart so heavy with a million thoughts. No one to un-bottle the contents.
The emptiness I feel inside. Who will fill this hole in my heart.
I am married to boredom.
Tick tock, like drumbeats my head bangs. No one to dance the rhythm of my heart.
The emptiness I feel inside, worse than a decade in exile.
Life like salt that has lost it's taste.
Hugs and kisses I long for.
Your tantrums I miss.
Your gentle touch I crave for.
The warmth of your skin I yearn for.
A thousand gold coins I will give to turn back the big hands of time.
The emptiness I feel inside, like a fire no one to extinguish.
The emptiness I feel inside. Loneliness holds me captive.
Trapped in the web of loneliness.
Who will take away this pain?
