my body aches
my soul is yearning
my heart exploding
yet my arms – as empty as my bed.

will the pain inside mi
subside within mi?

or will i die in this pain?

will my heart ache ‘til it breaks
my arms continue to reach out..

to nothing
to no one


day by day
a little more.

oh, sweet sorrow
it seems i call on you
more often than i wish
perhaps to hurt is better than
to simply feel nothing at all.

yet in the midst of this lonely
this misery,
i reach out
with oh, so much to give…

yet there is no one –
no one there.
