I'm really out of it right now, and I feel as though writing may be the only thing that will help.

Hollow

Although I am with you, I feel so alone.

Although you surround me, I am so empty.

Although you "love" me, I do not feel it.

Although you keep me, I do not feel kept.

I could cry and cry, and you'd never bat an eye.

How, oh how, did I fall so deep into your lie? 

How can you love me, if you wanted to escape?

Leave me forever,

Leave me to be replaced.

Replace me while you're with me,

Hurt me while you "keep" me.

I will never understand, 

I could never do this to you,

Even if it was a demand.

I fell too hard, 

You fell to little.

My heart hurts so much,

It's turning brittle.

It stings to know,

No matter how much you hurt me,

I'd never hurt you,

Even if you allowed me.

If my heart was a puppet these words would be the strings. So well written, laden with deep feelings and heartache. Thanks for sharing this. Unrequited love is a painful burden to silently bear.

Wow this piece was very powerful, I'm starting to think you've been through the grinder when it comes to love and that sucks. I'm one of those people that falls hard and fast so I def know how it feels to want someone to love you but you start to realize the more you're with them the less self worth you start to have because they don't fill that 'hollow' spot that you need them to fill. You want someone to make you feel whole but you're stuck with someone who ends up just eating away at you. That's why it's so important to find your own two feet before you try and get with anyone. That way when stuff like this happens you love yourself enough to move on and realize that they didn't deserve you. That 'Replace me while your with me line' was just so tragic and so well written. Such a short little phrase yet so much anger and hurt and sadness behind it :( You really have an amazing way with words, I LOVED this piece def found a new person to fan! :)

So much pain and betrayal in these words, written from the heart.
Keep your head up! Better things will come your way. Keep the hope alive and you will see.
You will find happiness!
