The Void

by Justen Smith   Aug 18, 2017


Lost in my mind,
Like a vast ocean,
The pain may have sunk,
Beneath the waves,
But now there is nothing,
It's quiet and lonely,
Atleast with my demons,
I had company,
Now I see all the way,
From the keel of my mind,
To the horizon,
And I long for a beast,
To rear its ugly head,
Am I mad to hope for such,
An evil incarnation,
To think I fought so hard,
To banish them to the depths,
And now I fear that nothing,
Will ever fill the void they left.

    Excellent write. I'm with moss and Ben about the demons. Having any sort of company sometime seems better than nothing. Well done

    Love this line and |I love the idea of craving any sort of company - even the demons'.

      Thank you, battles may scar us but the quiet between the storm is far scarier than any pain the actual storm inflicts.
