How to fill the empty space

When nothing seems enough

Pain is my constant companion

You could say that I have it rough

No rest, nor naps

A dark cool room

Where nothing makes a peep

My bed of pillows

Holds little solace

Just un-refreshing sleep

Distraction to exhaustion

I must continue to compete

Because giving up

Is for the weak

With a person that has dissipated

The loss of her makes me weep
