There is nothing inside of me
Only an empty hole
Where my heart and soul used to be

I look up from my void and see
A beautiful woman
Pick up that vital part of me

I extend my hand out to her
But never make it there
A glass wall keeping me from her

All I can do is watch and wait
Detached from a distance
As she presides over my fate

She examines my heart and soul
Itís many crags and nicks
The struggles of life take their toll

Then seemingly without a care
She drops it to the ground
Itís almost more than I can bear

All around me, my world shatters
Like my heart on the ground
Gone is everything that matters

Itís sundered into little shards
Gone for the time being
Crumbled like a frail house of cards

All thatís left to do is rebuild
From the shattered remains
Someday, the dream will be fulfilled

Soulful and well-phrased, evoking much empathy from experiences past. I too hope she is kind at some time.
