    There's an emptiness inside of me
    That I've been doing my best to avoid

    Words used to fill the hollow spot
    As deeply as the humans I once knew
    But slowly they all slipped out
    And left a bottomless well
    That burns like rotgut whiskey and ulcers

    There's an emptiness inside of me
    That I choose to ignore

    I take my mind off of it with small adventures,
    Afternoon beers,
    Late night cocktails,
    Early morning Mary's
    And whatever semblance of interaction I can procure.

    There's an emptiness inside of me
    That I've been trying to ignore

    But it has grown vicious teeth
    And jagged talons
    It tears me apart from the inside out
    But you'll never see it on my face
    or hear it in my voice

    There's an emptiness inside of me
    That I've done what I can to ignore.

    But the emptiness inside of me is mine
    And I'll walk with it to Death's door.
