An Empty life (poetry)

An Empty Life

Alone in a world full of people

 A haunting silence in a room full of noise

A bittersweet ending to a life of coldness

A life of emptiness

 A life of stabbing pain

Hold on!

Grasping onto all that is there

Razor sharp ripping skin of a hand that holds on with all its mite

Words of pain die on the lips

Why speak when no one listens

They hear the sound but do not listen to the pain

Blood drips constantly to the floor

A floor littered with broken promises and shattered dreams

Look into the mirror

See the haunted hurting soulful eyes staring back

Save her before it’s too late
