Treasure Island

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 Henry David Thoreau

My books I'd fain cast off, I cannot read,
'Twixt every page my thoughts go stray at large
Down in the meadow, where is richer feed,
And will not mind to hit their proper targe.
