Hollow

Dig a little deeper

Aim the shovel downwards

Tunnel to my soul

Each word you say

Reaches deeper

And you toss

What is left behind

In a pile of uncaring

Soon I will be hollow

Unable to trust

Unable to believe

Unable to love

And the vastness

You leave in me

Will only remind me

Of your cold empty heart
