Hollow - Poem by Ryan Joseph Holder

My eyes shower down
The remains of my soul
My heart's been devoured
I'm left on my own
My body is freezing
Yet, it's a hundred degrees
I could care less
What happens to me
I can't stop shaking
My essence is gone
Something about this
Feels so very wrong
I'm compleatly alone
And no one can help me
Nothing else matters
I feel so damn empty
Everyone says
They understand
But they're not alone
In some foriegn land
I left my everything
Back in the states
And now all I can do
Is hear my heart break
I miss my life
I miss my friends
I really wish
It didn't end
I can't even explain
How sad I feel
The sorrow in me
Is simply unreal
My heart is still beating
Just barely, and yet
I feel like a puppet...
A marionette...
I cannot believe
My life's in the dirt
If it's what I wanted
Then why does it hurt
Why did I leave
Why did I do it
Now all I am
Is muscles and fluids
I'm a capsule, a void,
A vessel that's empty!
I'm nothing. I'm no one...
Just go on without me..

    I love the last two lines of the poem. It completely sums up how you feel overall. I definately know how you feel when it comes to people thinking that they understand but have no idea at all. This is a really good poem i really like it

    Good Job
