That void where laughter never shines,
Where sorrow slinks like creeping vines,
That dreadful pit you cannot face ...
Oh yes, my friend - - - I know that place.
That crevice where the wounded hide,
Where anguish festers ‘neath the tide,
That emptiness you can’t embrace ...
Oh yes, it’s true - - - I know that place.
That hole where darkness swallows light,
Where terror crawls through birthing night,
That hollow fear you can’t erase ...
Oh yes, indeed - - - I know that place.
That chasm that consumes the mind,
Where “what if’s” play in slow rewind,
That endless loop you can’t outrace ...
Oh yes, I fear - - - I know that place.
That room where you feel all alone,
Where seeds of woe are strewn and thrown,
Look through the haze, you’ll see my face ...
You’re not alone - - - I know that place.
