I am blank
Empty as a house without people
In it
Lights off, doors locked, windows
Nailed shut
A vacant shell of who I used to be, and who I am
Waiting to become 

I am blank
As a white sheet, wordless
Though I am most certainly not clean
I was rubbed raw, 
Until all that was left was an empty

I am blank
An expressionless face, unreadable
Cool and collected
As if I feel nothing at all
But underneath lies a storm, a waterfall
Of tears
Raging beneath my skin, a place where 
No one can follow

I am blank
A tree without leaves
Bare, in the dead of winter, and
Although I am broken
I believe I can grow into a beautiful magnolia
And reach the sky, peaceful
At last

I am blank
Fill me
