It seems my fear has been catching up with me

Perhaps the control has been only pretend

And now I feel it slipping from my fingers

Trying to still keep my footing , in life and love

Its an empty space here in my insides

Trying to fill it I do , as Ive done before

Feeling my heart beating as the sweetness

Melts on my tongue and as it flows down into me

As I swallow I know it will dissapear into the darkness

No amount of sweet blocks will fill it

I move on to the next eat, convinced it will do the trick

My guilt starting to push up into my throat

Physically filled to the brim my breathing is shallow

Knowing not one more piece will fit down there

Guilt has spewed into my mouth

I taste the bitterness of it on my tongue
