the void


Trying to find what we once had

its lost

felt good but it didn’t last

it’s gone

but you don’t give up

it hurts

it’s long gone

she moved on

she has a new man now

so carry on

territory inhabited

because you abandoned it

your trash

his treasure

now live with it

don’t make the same mistake twice

too many instances

no one can make you happy

it’s a void

an illusion when you look outside

look within

for fulfillment

true love and appreciation

then you’ll be able to give it

and receive it

until then

you’ll be miserable and paranoid

looking for someone else

to fill that void
