Hollow

Feed me my cracked heart

I scoffed the soot,

I drank it all

Churned it all.

Burned like ash,

Breathed like earth,

Cracked like hearth.

Peeling.

Hollow.

Find me,

A sharpened knife

A daggered grave,

An endless grief.

Straining.

Hollow.

    1. Thank you so much. With this I didn’t know where to start but I just went with how I felt and let that out as honestly as I can make it. There is something indescribable about certain pains or emotions, the best you can hope for is to be close enough to that elusive quality. Hopefully this was enough.
