Poem: 'Running Empty'


- 6.June.2007-


I stood in the dark, running this through my head
Running it over and over and over again
Not knowing how to know what you really meant
Not knowing if you know, that I know you don’t mean what you said
Now one thousand sorry’s could not cut
The barbed wire that’s strapped round my heart
And ten thousand hugs just could not mend
This trust, this trust, this trainwreck
This trainwreck of emotion thrown widely from the track
And I don’t know, I don’t know... just how to just put it back
And one thousand tears wont wash away this pain
And although they’re still flowing, flowing again
I don’t know if I’ll ever really be the same in the end
I believed what you said, when you promised me that...
And a promise when it’s broken, can’t be simply taken back
Did you mean what you said, or did you simply promise to lie
Not that it matters now, cuz forever, I’ll bury it deep inside
And these words are the illusion, for what’s running through my head
As I run this, As I run this, over again.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

I heard the bells on Christmas day
Their old familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet the words repeat
Of peace on earth, good will to men.
