Hollow



I reached out
hoping to find the familiar warmth
that had always saved me from the cold
the one light that kept me
alive in winter snows
but i felt nothing
nothing but the cold empty space..
i reached further and further
thinking it cant be far off
but there was nothing
nothing but the cold empty space
all around me and beyond..

I was alone with me
so i reached within
to find strength
to carry on in the winter storm
but there i found
a broken
shattered
wounded soul
that murmured and pleaded
for one stroke of the warmth
for it to live on
it gasped and gasped
then went from blue to black
and lay..still

and now there is
nothing but the empty space around me
and nothing but a dead soul within

  2. How odd to say a soul is dead, especially such a poetic one.
