Let Me In

November 20, 2008
By Olivia Ward, Bloomfield Hills, MI

It breaks my heart when I hear your voice
And I keep in my head each and every noise
Sing to me a truth from the inside
An ache from the soul and a blow to mine
You’re sailing away
You’re sailing away on an empty ship
that's your empty home with an empty heart, it’s hard…

And it kills me so when I touch your face
And I feel your hurt in this bitter embrace
Tell me a story from your world
And truth be told, fill it with all your cold
You’re flying away
You’re flying away on an empty dream
that’s your empty home with an empty heart, it’s hard…

And I’ll let you be when you let me die
And your suffering leaves you all behind
Let me in on a secret of a love long gone
And say to me all the words I never heard
You’re walking away
You’re walking away down an empty road
that’s your empty home with an empty heart, it’s hard…

The author's comments:
Robert Pattinson's song "Never Think" inspired this piece. It's originally a song, but it can be a poem as well. It's meant for anyone that knows someone or feels like they themselves are nothing - or have nothing left to give to anybody.
