    The odes I wrote haunt me
    Traveling through the depths of my dormant soul
    Was like searching through Pandoras box
    And I became lost
    In my enigmas never ending maze
    My outer beauty no longer
    Makes up for my inner confusion
    Passification for my personal battles lies at the end of a journey I avoided all my life
    I knew that
    This is what it'd come to
    And this is what I'd go through
    Everytime
    An ex wiccans curses and past
    Resurfaces and
    She can't dig a ditch deep enough
    To burry her burdens
    And life
    Doesn't mean what it used to
    Love
    Doesn't feel like it used to
    Happy days
    Are too few and far in between
    Now you'd probably guess that I was depressed
    But that ain't it
    I'm just empty
    And confused
    Something's not right when empty stares become the norm
    And the truth ain't what it seems
    And no matter how far I run
    I look back
    Just when I thought I left it
    I turned around
    And there it was staring me in the eyes

    Contemplating the nothing,
    I found it to be something else!

    Great work, poet.
