Hollow Thoughts

Your eyes imprison
a soul that lies in wait.
My heart echoes,
hollow beats drifting
into deaf ears.
Each memory
sinks beyond reach,
my hand reaching for your heart
as I fall into you.
break weak promises
that withstood the test of time.
Thoughts struggle
to break free of marrow cages,
bones crushing to dust
under a vacant frame.
My eyes bleed
the pain withheld,
undoubtedly broken
for all of eternity.
Lesson by lesson
you slip past me,
until I am truly alone.
