Hollowed

Of all the hurt and shame , you were by far my greatest. I gave you my all, let down my guard and pulled you close,

Yet, somehow, I didn’t see what was lurking underneath, how hollow your eyes were when they reflected mine. How pretty your lies were when they spun webs around my heart. How gently the words were when you held me close, the weight of them truly empty under the pressure of your disguise.

Hollies hearts make for hollowed minds, or so I’m told. And I carved a space out for you in both. But I know now, you were merely a passenger, a dragonfly floating on the next gust of wind. And still, I ‘d let you back,

Of all the hurt and shame you were by far the worst, because I gave you my all, and I continue to do so again, and again and again.
