You are empty void of light
hunger for this life gnaws at your insides
picking you clean leaving you starving.
The mirror reflects an easy smile
painted permanently side to side
rosy red your eyes as dark as night
& there’s nothing to hold onto
no healing hand to lead
as you search the outside for an inside clue
The trees turn gold and weep for summers hope
& you are spinning, no control dizzy from
the burnt out cinders of a love that left.
You are empty like a broken doll
waiting for a sound to hold you up
waiting for it all to be
