You'Ve Left An Empty Room Behind - Poem by Holly Heron

You've left an empty room behind
Neatly packed away in boxes
You pecked my cheek and said goodbye
You walked right out
Didn't look back
I think my hearts backed in that box
The one marked 'memories'
They're long forgotten now
You left an empty room behind
I've never been able to fill it
It's been so long ago that I doubt you will remember
That sunny room I gave you
So warm and soft and light
But you saw what hid in the cupboard
You ran away in fright
You left an empty room behind
My heart packed up in your boxes
You've left an empty room behind
I've never been able to fill.
