A Hollow Heart

Time went to pass
Now’s time to go
I don’t want to leave
On must go the show

But I’ve been here a while
Over long to stay
I should pick up a smile
And be on my way

But something holds still
Near and true to my heart
An emptiness to fill
Which is why I cannot part

So on I still fight
The battle not won
Plundering might
From depths undone

But closer I come
Death’s whisper in my ear
But screaming in silence
A fear that I’m near

I lie on death’s table
Struggling for breath
Not much longer I am able
To fight off my own death

Yet you stand next to me
Holding onto what I’m left
Grasping my hand you softly say
Without you, love I am bereft

Then in an instant, it’s filled
The hole in my heart
Nothing else more to build
What I’ve wanted from the start

So now I breathe deep
One final pure and true
As for the smile I will keep
Because it was love I finally knew

I absolutley loved this. It is so deep and flows so well. It ended very strong and had a very empowering message. If i could say one thing that I would approve upon it would be the 3rd to last stanza sounded a bit awkward. Also the 6th stanza uses "death" twice and it seems a bit over used. But like i said previously, I really did enjoy this emensly and think that you have a true talent.
