Empty Words Fall
maybe reality has fooled me
maybe it was all a game.
I wished for illusions, yet I know
we are born to trouble, taught to love.
can I love even once without getting hurt?
built up with many hands
destroyed with one act
this temple held what I thought I knew
now as though it was never there
the ground waits for new seeds
nettles sting my skin
hidden in who I thought I knew.
Challenged to add rejection to friendship
It let the foundation crumble
And I have to walk away with nothing.
You redefined character in my weakness...
I have the world, yet could lose my soul.
I will stop breathing
since there is nothing here for me.
Why did I think I can change hearts?
How can sovereignty be put on the shelf?
I get in the way
Then stumble back in the shadows
I should have known, should have loved less
Less that perfect
Maybe reality is right here
A little broken, with silence waiting in my hands.
