Hollow

-Silence is Only Golden, To 
                       Those of Us Who Can Hear it -

Even in The Pitch, The Rumbling of Nothing
Stirs Up The Voices Behind My Eyes.

The Virtuousness Withers as My Patience
Rots Like Wilting, Weather Beaten Wood.

             - I Love How The Creative Brain Studies  
                                Academic Precision as if it Were The Enemy -

And There it is Again My Friend, That Voice
Which Whispers So Lucidly, " You're Alone" 

It Strips The Oils From Your Skin and Turns
The Eyes into Harnesses of The Dark.

              - The Strain of the Dilation Dries The Liquid,
                                 And The Hollowness Overtakes The Mindset -

Trapped inside a Head That Doesn't Want You
There. Sharing A Skull With The Devil.

The Searing Heat Creates a Deep Scar, A
Comforting Recognition of Overcoming Pain.

               - We Tend To Fear What We Can't See, But
                                 I'm More Afraid of What's Staring Me in The Face -

    wow um wow this poem was brilliantly written, i almost dont know what to say, i loved it all that beautifully dark imagery and not to much not to little ( i am a major sucker for some good imagery) that great imagery combined with a very intellegent sounding and carefully written piece to come together and create the perfect description of the feeling of hollowness. i thought it was great.

    I love this, honey, even though it's incredibly sad. You always evoke such a potent emotional response in your poems... I love these parts the most: "It Strips The Oils From Your Skin and Turns The Eyes into Harnesses of The Dark." "We Tend To Fear What We Can't See, But I'm More Afraid of What's Staring Me in The Face" Gorgeous. I love you, Blaze. <3
