This empty house
I pull away and make the long solitary drive,
along streets that glisten from newly formed ice,
the darkness is heavy all around me,
as I walk down the hallway to my door,
I turn the key, step through the entrance,
and walk into this empty house.
Dreams that have been scattered,
hopes that have been shot down,
the feelings of love being torn from my chest,
what used to be will never be again,
to know what is right before me, yet seems a lifetime away,
rings like haunting echos through abandoned corridores,
in this empty house.
I struggle to understand the complexities of life,
I am confused by the nature of people,
I wish there was peace and harmony for me,
I want someone to hold and love,
I need someone who is gentle and kind,
to fill the void in this empty house.
Love heals everything
