what was left

I feel that a light is dying somewhere inside this poor heart
that somewhere inside me there is a hole
widening and growing, falling aside
that someone is missing in this cold life
then i remember that it is you
it's just an emptiness
an absent caress during the night
and somewhere there was a light that faded out
out beyond a hole that consumed my heart
my heart that aches as if it were hollowed
a collection of memory gone that followed
all the love that disappeared into this hole
that you left inside of me somewhere
and i want to fill it with something other than my love
but love is too quick to catch
unless you stick around to help me
only if you could
only if you could
but now i'm just this hole
this dark nothing swallowing up at what life has left me
until all that is left
is this hole
