Emptiness - Poem by Ashley Olson

The blood that falls from my heart is not pain
Though it's the tears from my eyes
For red is not showing but it's the emptiness from my soul
For I would die then live but live to die
Nor how deep you go no pain I will feel
Theirs nothing you can do that I havent done to myself
Theirs just things that you wouldn't understand
And how my life goes that's one thing you will never get
People say 'picture you in my shoes'
I dont have to because I know the shoe wont fit
