Empty Shell

The clouds moved in as the first snow fell

The breath of winter came and cast a spell

Over the windows and through the doors

He blew a chill that sank into my pores

And cut me like a knife right to the bone

As I sit here in the darkness so all alone

Wondering how can I take another day

Of living without you in pain this way

How can I survive these eyes that cry

Wanting you so badly that I feel I’ll die

From a broken heart that bleeds for you

It hurts just to breathe I swear it’s true

I pray for sleep but sleep won’t stay

It’s the only thing that chases the hurt away

There are times I’m bitter and I do regret

All the wasted hours since the day we met

Who will warm the lonely as I sit and cry

I feel it would be easier to lie down and die

Thoughts of you not being here feel like hell

They’ve eaten me I’ve ended up an empty shell
