An Emptiness Inside


Riding around town has left me feeling lost and down tonight,
usually it helps pick me up and makes things better.

What is wrong? What is different about this dark and lonely
night?

It isn't lack of love or anything like that, just an emptiness
inside that can't be quenched. Why tonight? Will this cold
numb feeling ever go away again?

How much longer can I go on driving, looking for the thing
that will fill me up again?

Losing someone you love is the worst thing to happen in this
world, it's where life has stopped caring about everything,
but a loved one's lost life.

There's no happiness or joy, no one to comfort or ease the
pain, just a long tunnel of nothing, nothing evermore.

There's no love left in life to give to someone who once was
loved and now has died.

What sort of meaning can anyone get from it? I know of none,
because a loved one has died and I can find no reasoning for
it to have happened like this.

How can I go on without my life being whole ever again? Can
anyone tell me? Can anyone make some sense of all this death?

No one can.

Alone, I suffer through this thing on my own with some love
waiting on the sidelines, trying it's best to cheer me on to
the rest of my life.

Yet, I am still alone.
