Inspired by Mother Combs

Swimming in a numbing sea

drowning in the emptiness

feeling nothing inside or out

a vacant, emotionless mind

being swallowed by a hole of nothingness

trapped in the blank space in my head

This was inspired by, and parts written by, Mother Combs. If you don't already, please read some of her amazing work.

    Climb out of the hole before it completely swallows you up. Arise little bird, and fly way up high.

    Oh, I felt that resonating deeply. Ironic, since it's about feeling nothing, but damn if it's not true. Well done :)
