Emptiness


I stare into this darkness,
hoping him i'll find.
But I can't see anything,
he's caused me to go blind.

I think my heart is missing,
or maybe it's just dead.
I'm falling into an emptiness,
I'm hanging by a thread.

I walk our old path,
hoping I'll see his face.
But I don't see him anywhere,
I've finally been replaced.

I wish he could see,
the tears he's made fall.
I'm waiting by the phone,
but still he does not call.

I crawl into bed,
I turn out the lights.
I cry I'm alone,
he's holding her tonight.

I die when I look at his status,
I guess they're getting married.
I didn't thnk it would end like this,
that I'd be the one getting burried.

It was all my fault;
I let him down.
I couldn't do it by myself,
couldn't hold our love above the ground.

I'll let him be,
let him close the door.
I'll let him live his life,
even if it means I'm left sore.

poet Alfred Edward Housman

The time you won your town the race
We chaired you through the market-place;
Man and boy stood cheering by,
And home we brought you shoulder-high.
