Dear hollow heart

So, dear hollow heart, we pervade in our lie?
We skulk amongst the demons
And hide where angels fear to fly.
We talk and commit once more to just try
But the words feel so empty
As bitter, lonely tears we cry.

Was it an uphill battleground right from the start?
From the day we first met
The one still seared on my breaking heart?
For since then, concealment has become such an art
Duplicity, self-preservation
Both playing their wicked part.

And yet we both know that whatever we be
The mess we’re in might straighten out
But for now, in the meantime, I’m out of energy
I’m floundering – drowning
And lost in your darkest sea

For who should protect you as you stand in the pouring rain
The one who rejects you?
(For you rejected her, just the same)
Who do we turn to, when there’s nobody left to blame?
We turn on each other
And go on with this vicious game…

In the meantime my hopes are held by others for now
Too precarious to hang them on
So robustly fragile a vow
And the sadness wells up as we admit that we don’t know how
We’ve arrived once again at
The impasse of the final bow.

    “hopes are held by others for now…” I remember reading this in another of your comment streams on the Considerer blog and wondered about it… this makes it really understandable to me… I wish people could actually give a piece of the hope we have for each other to one another… but in the mean time I will just have to hold it for you.

    Yeah. I got a few people hanging onto those hopes. Be nice to know that you were one of them. Thanks. Because mine are truly all but gone.
