The Black Void

Peace in pain
Torment in solitude.

Sad isn’t it?
We become so used to pain,
so accustomed to disappointment that
A life without being let down isn’t a life worth living.

We fall into the trap of the same old broken connections,
We distrust ourselves enough to not trust ourselves enough to be alone.
The black void of the soul
Plaguing the mind and heart,
spreading throughout our bodies like
the cancer of an untrustworthy partner.

So broken that anything resembling glue,
resembling reassembling ourselves translates to
an ancient foreign myth
told to scare people
by teaching them about the phenomenon that is
self-love
and self-preservation.

scary isn’t it ?

our lack of self-awareness.
our ability to settle for subpar
because
“It’s better to settle than to
fight for what we deserve”

Terrifying.

    • I agree, great pity what it has all become. Many unaware and falsely content with the dull feeling of pain, most aware and choose to do nothing about it. Not only terrifying, but also interesting. Why settle for pain when you could love happily?”comfort” only lasts so long…

      • But comfort in pain doesn’t last forever, soon enough the blinding glasses binding you to the pain cracks and you’re left in a pit of black alone. I don’t know I understand why many stay, I get that it’s “safe” but while you might find peace in this familiar you’re also losing yourself..

  1. Hi and thanks for the like. πŸ™‚
    because
    β€œIt’s better to settle than to

    not better – easier.
    The strong fight for what they want/’deserve’, the rest of us settle for what we can get of whatever’s left. Some of us try for a while to be strong but become tired too soon. For some life is a fight they just don’t have the energy to fight right now.
    Life, by Nature, is competitive and not all participants can ‘win’.
    love.
