Empty Holes

Empty holes people leave in me when they’ve left
Are just bearable to say the least
I walk a line down the middle of the road 
Searching deep inside
Trying to find something worth saving
Loss took the child in me
Love has broken the girl in me
Hatred brought forth the woman in me
And Pain is all I can see
Day by day I keep going
Hearts break and love can grow
All I need is a hand to hold, a hand that will stay.
Avoiding what the world wants to throw at me 
Its all I can do to stay
I keep wondering what really is left for me here
Even the one keeping me here
Doesn’t even see
Our eyes cry and our tears fall
Just so we know that it hurts
One day I will find a place where I can stay
And no one will leave me
For now Ill walk this line down the middle of this road 
In the dark alone
