Gone and Empty

I feel like my heart is gone
Replaced with a sack of dirt and ashes
Old brown dirt and dusty ashes

I feel like my dreams are gone
Replaced with other people's expectations
Golden-shiny expectations

I feel like my spirit is gone
Replaced with robotic machinery
Yes sir, no ma'am robotic machinery

I feel like my love is gone
Replaced with a wind-me-up soul
Tick, tock, tick, tock, wind-me-up soul

I feel like my hope is gone
Replaced with a stack of broken promises
Crumpled and stained broken promises

I feel like myself has gone
Embarked on a permanent vacation
So long, I won't see you later, permanent vacation

I feel deserted, alone, afraid.

I feel broken, demolished, unmade.

I feel...

Empty.

I like your poems, a lot :) They really make me ponder.
