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.

Poem of the Day

poet Edmund Spenser

Of this worlds theatre in which we stay,
My love like the spectator ydly sits
Beholding me that all the pageants play,
Disguysing diversly my troubled wits.
