Nothing

Weakness and Sorrow

Take away all that is the best of me

Suck me dry and render it down

Leave me a hollow husk of former life

Gone... and all because of you.

Why do I hang upon your every word?

Why do I cling to myth and mirth?

Why can’t I simply say enough!

And leave. And run. Run!

Far and fast, away from you.

Ignore that which breaks in my chest

Ignore this glowing thing that threatens to die

To erase my existence, so I drift away

Lost and alone, in a sea of anguish

Pulled under by jaws of malice

Torn and rent apart by longing

Unrequited and unattainable

I long to love you

As I long for clarity

I ache to be more

I ache to be yours!

I wish for sanction

And sanctuary in your arms

But I find no solace

Just empty promises

Empty wishes

An empty heart.

As you take all that is the best of me

And render it down

To nothing.
