Dry tears falling
one after the other
your hands stained with the soul you have taken
a life lost
a life that was controlled by you.

The vast emptiness

an echoing chamber of silence

the bottomless cavern

forever falling the shattered remains.
Lies-the catalysts of pain.

Forgive and forget

and endure hurt again.
Dive deeper still
tearing, still, further every time.

Won’t bear to live

one moment away

yet not able to live on

a moment’s stay.
Eaten from the inside out
burning up
crying out.

Dying within

of a broken heart.
Torn to pieces
covered by prints
belonging to you.

Wow! i love this! Its so beautiful. The only criticism i can possibly give is that the ending is a little weak compared to the beginning. but that issue is microscopic. Amazing!
