Feeling Empty

has life 
gotten
on my last nerve

let me check
am I still here
wallowing

do I really
want to know
what life means to me

or am I done
with feeling
empty emotions

and fickle people’s
trying attempt
at connection

that misses
every.damn.time
to engage

i fear i’m done

  1. That poem reminds of my 20’s. It resonated strongly with me.

    1. This was me a few times in my life. Glad to hear you only experienced this in your 20s.

      1. Well I suffer from anxiety and depression but I haven’t felt like the way your poem describes in almost 30 years, I want to thank my wife of 6 yrs (9 yrs together) for that fullness 🙂

      2. Here’s to partners who help us feel better! <3

  2. This is exactly how I feel right now

  3. Very nice. I too fear ‘Am I done’?
