My Hollow Heart
A hollow heart is not a broken one,
Neither is it empty,
It is a heart that has been taken,
Away from the soul,
Misplaced and intensely alone.
A hollow heart has no place to rest,
No voice can reach the painful depths,
It is a heart that has been ripped apart,
More than it could bear,
Yet it is a heart that won’t give up,
While it refuses to hate or despair.
A hollow heart wants to be strong again,
Able to feel joy again,
Breathe the air of love once more,
As it slowly heals between arrows of hope.
