travelling through space {a poem}

image © Mariann Martland

i’ve been filling myself up for years 
with anything that can let me live
under the illusion that i do not feel empty.
 
because feeling it means acknowledging
just what was taken from me,
leaving a void so vast
i could get lost in the darkness if i let myself.
 
there’s no gravity in there.
just vacuums of space that have
never been explored.
