Empty Space
Lissa N Metz-Gomez

You spend your days trying
to make yourself be
the perfect person
perfectly untouchable
you'll never get hurt
perfectly righteous
hanging on your cross
my own personal saviour
where were you when
I needed you?
the only person you let down
was the one who loved you most
Idyllic lives
we could have shared
but your purity
left me weary
my soul is tired
and I am done
the fighting is no more
but still we linger
in this dreary space
and all the space
between "you" and "me"
is an eternity

"I like this piece more. One must suffer the wound of love in order to know what true love means. So the ones we hold dear the most are the ones who can also leave us with the deepest wound in our hearts. And if a heart is broken, it makes us resist to feel what could be true in our living moments. We roam as if everywhere all is empty." -- chy, cdo, philippines.
"Thank you for demonstrating have very emotive writting can be. You have encapsulated not only your thoughts, but also a common theme in what it is to be mortal; fallible. Please keep writing; we need more voices like yours." -- A J Magy, Sfld, MI, US.
