*Hollow*

Only
Never
Always
Forever

Words
with power
of giving life

Words
empty
with no meaning

A moment of flight
An eternity of downfall

A rise into a false hope
taken by the fire of a riddle
and by silence of a strange reason

One soul
tired of begging
leaves the daylight
to stay in a hollow night
to remain inside the dream

The smile stays on
embraced by an illusion

  5. From shadows
    the soul shines,
    smiles,killing
    the darkness
    inside..
    You hear cries ?
    Check again
    the once loved
    ties,now they
    crawl away,
    touched by
    your lies.
    But the soul
    smiles,
    shines,
    finally
    I will
    see light.

    You fascinate me. Your words speak of frustration
    But your gift speaks of conquest.
    For this is the arena of life
    And if not for your words writ
    I would not have cause to rise
    For a reason my love
    YOU LIVE!
