    I wish I could form the words to express this

    feeling I get. No matter how hard I try I can't help but feel a hint of regret. Though this hollowness tells me its more then the usual feelings I've met. My eyes are wide open yet I feel like I can't see a thing. I wish someone could lead me and tell me exactly what to bring...
