Empty - Poem by nikki hays

Withered body heart and mind
For all the nights alone I've cried
Sorrow fills my every thought
To think that all this came to naught

Where did we lose?
What went wrong?
How is it now?
That you are gone

I taste the tears
Salt ridden streams
Flowing freely
So it seems

Cast aside
Tormented soul
Empty spirit
Part of a whole

Twisted anger
Loves regret
I rue the day
We ever met

Took me in
Then stole my pride
Only for you
I lived and died

Hollow casing
Empty shell
Now am lost
My soul in hell

As you left
You tore apart
This once complete
Now broken heart

Ripped my being
Now in two
This is all
That’s left of you

Charming demon
Enchanting fiend
You tasted of me
Now I bleed

Leave me here
Remnant of past
My time has come
I cannot last

Swept under carpet
Long forgotten
Shallow memories
Sour and rotten

I give up
Throw in the towel
Look to the moon
In pain I howl

Withered body heart and mind
For all the nights alone I’ve cried
Sorrow fills my every thought
To think that all this came to naught
