Empty Heart

Poem by Angel Morrell

I sit here in silence,
a tear rolls down my face.
As I am starting to feel lost
and my life so out of place.
I hear my heart beating as it calls your name,
Something about us seems different,
you are not quite the same.
We no longer laugh or joke
like we used to do.
You no longer smile, in
your eyes I can see straight through.
Your heart seems so empty
your bare.
I can not see anything-
not even that you care.
How did it come to this?
What happened along the way?
To make your heart fall out of love,
and your heart to turn away?
I know in my eyes you can
see the pain.
My love for you will always remain.
How can you turn emotions
off like a switch to suddenly not care?
Please turn it back on again
for I want you here.
Remember all the good things
that made us fall in love.
Search down deep in your darkened heart
back to when our life was all you thought of.
Give it one more try, do not be so quick to
throw it all away.
For the time may come
and you may regret it all one day.
I can not wait forever,
though my love will last that long.
I will too have to let go,
and one day be strong.
Do not wait for that time to pass
and let it completely slip away.
Regretfulness is a terrible way to live.
For some day it too will be
all I have to give.
