Emptiness can fill your life
I've been consumed by it for years
From being bashed by men i've chosen
To the solitude and tears.

Emptiness is like a cavity
It yearns to rot and decay,
Eventually your just and empty shell
And just wish you could fade away

Emptiness leads to depression
And then when your cold inside
You feel there's nothing left for you
Emptiness leads to suicide
