This is my first poem I have published, I'm scared, nervous and excited to start publishing my art.

This poem was written about a year ago.

I hope I can get some feedback from this <3

The Emptiness Within Me

This numbness fills me up,

This numbness fills me up, leaving me with nothing at all,

This numbness fills me up, leaving me with nothing at all, keeping me on my toes,

This numbness fills me up, leaving me with nothing at all, keeping me on my toes, wondering what is it like to feel?

This numbness fills me up, leaving me with nothing at all, keeping me on my toes, wondering what is it like to feel? what is happiness?

This numbness fills me up, leaving me with nothing at all, keeping me on my toes, wondering what is it like to feel? what is happiness? what is anger?

This numbness fills me up, leaving me with nothing at all, keeping me on my toes, wondering what is it like to feel? what is happiness? what is anger? what is pain?

I'm screaming for help,

I'm screaming for help, yet no one can hear me.

I'm yearning for a soul,

I'm yearning for a soul, yet I can't seem to find one.

I'm searching for myself,

I'm searching for myself, yet I can't seem to accept what I find.

It's like I'm in a forest,

It's like I'm in a forest, trying to find the hidden light,

It's like I'm in a forest, trying to find the hidden light, with a clear road ahead.

The sound of the tearing skin,

The sound of the tearing skin, the burning sensation,

The sound of the tearing skin, the burning sensation, the sight of the crimson blood,

The sound of the tearing skin, the burning sensation, the sight of the crimson blood, that's what kept me going,

The sound of the tearing skin, the burning sensation, the sight of the crimson blood, that's what kept me going, that's what made me feel.
