Empty

Are your words
That contradicts all your actions
Are your eyes
That pretends to understand & see
Are the vows
You defaced and discarded
Are your promises
Delivered to me with no intent
Are your arms
That pulled me in and then pushed me away
Are your feelings
That are shallow and forged
Are your apologies
Freely and fraudulently given
Are the cards & letters
That echoes the words of each previous one
Are the tomorrows
Which you unfaithfully stripped away from me
Is the heart and soul of the man that
Maliciously deceived, betrayed, dishonored, and callously
held my heart, soul, respect, and unconditional love.
