Your Empty Heart

Your smile speaks of love

In a voice soft like the wind,

Convincing me you feel no pain,

Cry no tears,

From a wounded heart.


The arms that hold me close

Are warm and soft like summer dawn,

Reminding me that the brightest smile,

The most sparkly eyes,

Hide the most torment.


You try to hide the shadows

With artificial rays of shine,

But the sorrow within your soul,

As black as the Devil's heart,

Keeps out all the light.


My gentle, apologetic words of sincerity

Fall like little drops of rain,

To dissolve and disappear

Within the empty well that once

Was your heart.
