The Empty

I am the empty,
the void that calls your name.
I want you,
I need to swallow the light you bring,
cover it with my invading darkness.
I'll take your soul,
bend it,
twist it,
until you don't recognize the girl in the mirror.
Come to me,
follow your temptations.
I know your secrets,
that need to remain anonymous,
the desire for invisibility.
I am the Empty,
and I want you to become as I am.


  1. The ending makes me feel like you're talking to yourself I think? or perhaps an alternate aura to it? Not sure.. but I like the wordplay.. powerful..

    Here's My Poetry For The Rally

  2. Yes empty here I come :)
    Don''t most of us end up there anyway? When you have given so much, held on to hope that lied to you for so long, you have to protect yourself and welcome emptiness...enjoy the rally!

    keep it up.

    Happy Rally.
