Nothing but a Whole

by Raychil   Apr 11, 2010

I watch you from the outside
Looking into your soul
Watching it absorb the earth
Struggling to be whole

It pulls me closer to it
But I must turn away
I shed my tears for you
Watched as you fell astray

I held out my hand until it grew cold
I held my breath as I waited
I supported you and your choices
And neglected those whom you hated

I watched as you tried to fill
The emptiness you carried
And finally I realized
That even I would be buried

Buried by the weight
That came with loving you
Buried by the things
You desperately clung to

I tried to see the good
But darkness ate your soul
It ate away the sweetness
And left nothing but a hole.
