Webster’s dictionary defines a void as: not occupied; vacant; not inhabited; deserted; containing nothing. That sounds about right.
I define a void as: sadness; depression; loneliness; fear; defeat.
For as long as I can remember, I have tried to fill the void. I’m always trying to keep myself distracted so I won’t feel like I’m alone.
It starts when I go home. I check Facebook and I have no new notifications. I check my e-mail and see that no one needs me for anything.
My homework is complete, my house is tidy…The panic sets in.
