Empty

“Empty”
-Michael David Anderson-

Hello Empty,
I swore again to never let you back into me
But hearts were broken, another harmful spree
I was left, but I was right, and I was set free

I pulled up the manuscript of my life
I rewrote the passages that needed changing
I decided to omit the strife
And do some much needed rearranging

The faces began to blur by
But I didn’t care, I didn’t cry
Let them fly
These memories will not die

These wishes born inside
In you, I do confide

I will not let anyone hold me down
I will not let anyone leave me to drown
No regrets, no one forgets
I wouldn’t leave anyone here

Hello Empty,
The end is near, it’s time for you to leave
No more fear, I’m fairly sure I can finally breathe

Ghosts taunting
Smiles flaunting
Those eyes look over to recognize
There was no disguise

Face to face, damn this disgrace
Damn that luck, damn that misery
Damn her for ever bewitching me

You’re always born inside
In you, I do confide

I will not let anyone hold me down
I will not let anyone leave me to drown
No regrets, no one forgets
No one should ever be left here

Goodbye Empty,
Hit the road, up in smoke
This was all just a petty joke

You’re no longer on the inside
This is the last time I shall confide

I will not let anyone hold me down
I will not let anyone leave me to drown
No regrets, no one forgets
No one else will leave me here
