when I was younger
and craving celebration
inside I was lost

I keep to myself
embracing my emptiness
nothing fills the hole


Write a "historical" poem.
I reflected on my past history of partying hardy to try and fill the hole in my soul.
Use a given letter multiple times in your piece.
I'm not sure which letter was used the most, but E is a likely candidate.

  1. I am an optimistic pessimist. I hope for the best and expect the worst. And I am very rarely surprised.


This is a safe space. Be respectful.
