    when i look in the mirror
    sometimes my thoughts
    touch the reflection of my heart
    in its glass case and is surprised
    by what it feels

    nothing

    nothing in nothing out
    and the nothingness is
    so complete and whole
    and i think to myself it's ok
    just hover and hold
    don't think don't feel
    don't rush to get out of this hole
    just be still but still be
    let the nothingness run its course
    because when it's through touching
    everything inside me
    and the numbness no longer makes me ill
    i will be brand new and no longer still
    and will be able to discern between whether
    matters of my heart are fake or true
    because right now honestly
    i don't know and i am lost

    At the end what seem unreal is and thy heart is true to oneself

    And
    Though, I gather
    I’m not the one to say
    What matters
    …Not the one to discuss
    The longings
    And
    Loneliness
    Of the heart
    Or
    The holes
    We find ourselves in
    I feel the pain
    Of your PEACE
    And the
    Ill at ease
    Of this disease
    Called
    Nothingness
    The numbness
    Encompassing the whole
    Attacking the soul
    Forcing us to
    Fold
    But we must hold (on)
    For the new
    DAWN

    It comes.
