Empty Kingdom [Poem]



pick me up in your car

take me somewhere nice

make me forget

a loveless life


take me to the stars

take me into your skin

i’ll match who you think i am

i’ll become his twin


ask me what’s missing

what else is there

in love and war

few things are fair


thinking back of

the night we met

when doubts become routine

we’re a solo duet


making me wonder

if i had a heart

things would be different

we’d not fall apart


as you forget me

delete forever

i am still here

you pretend i was never


things carry on

no emotion

waters run wild

river loves the ocean


empty kingdom of

you and i

back to the start

loop and deny






This poem was inspired by songs that accompanied major life changes…
