“The Hollow” 

Enveloped by this hollow world—

Loneliness fills the space. 

Crying out for one who understands,

I long for one to take my hand, yet no one comes. 

My heart breaks and the tears fall—

Resentment has set in.

Shouting against all that is unfair,

I rebuke those who do not care, yet no one hears. 

The wall built and stronghold established—

Bitterness takes root. 

Hurting from excruciating pain,

I withdraw into myself to never be the same, yet no one knows.
