By Commander_Cadaver

Lately I feel...nothing.

Not a normal nothing but

A different kind of nothing,
Not the artist's nothing.

A nothing that falls into the v o i d.

The void I try to avoid.

An abyss that I can't seem to escape

A b y s s

I want out yet I want to swim in it.

Can you help me feel again?

Can you help me feel things that I don't want to feel
Except with the wrong person?

Feelings grow cold. Cold grows overwhelming.

Overwhelmingly nothing.

    Some times, I have panic attacks while floating in my own void. It helps to breathe and know that it doesn't last forever. It gets better.

    Thank you for the advice. I appreciate it.

    Throw shit at a wall. It's unusually satisfying. Literally, (if you want to, meaning I haven't done that, yet.) You don't have to spill your guts when you write but, maybe use pieces of yourself in what you do to tap in to your hurt. Sometimes when you get pissed off, you do some of your best work.

    I'll try that (the using anger when writing) as soon as I can. Thanks.
