There's a void in me like a chasm
Ever expanding
And all the richness of the universe falls right in
Lost to the abyss of a mind so dark and deep
Its boundaries seem limitless
And all those hopes and prayers
Softly whispered in so many moments of despair
Are swallowed and consumed
Reformed and remoulded in my womb
Giving light in desperate times
When laughter sadly turned to cries
Of longing for an anchor long since raised
I am adrift
Floating hopelessly towards a better day
