My Emptiness

All who feed my emptiness will fall as I pass..

Everything I wanted was right there feeding my soul.                                                     All I could feel was empty and cold. 
	I never cared if  my needs would hurt you.
You filled me with all I asked for and I still took more.
	I only needed you for me.
I took your body and soul and left you with an empty hole.
	I never thought of your needs.
I see you now broken and empty, waiting on me.
	Your arms begging for the love I took from you
I could never fill you, I can never share.
	I can not give you what is not mine.
Close your eyes and I will gone.
	All of  this is just a dream, a ghost of the former me.
 I'm empty and cold, the only thing I know
	I never think I just take .
Everything I've ever wanted has been there all along.
	All I could do was take and be gone.
