Empty Nightmare

The winds blow silently through my barren soul
Caressing and touching what is left of my core

I am locked so deeply inside of myself
That I am lost to this world

I stumble through my days
Then drift through my nights

On the outside you will never see
The rot that has devoured me

Cased in a beautiful aesthetic shell
I am pretty to look at but empty as a dry well

You may want to love me
But I will never love you

I have nothing inside of me to give
This is the nightmare in which I live

    Strong writing here. There's a touch of irony though on your second to last line..."I have nothing inside of me to give". I have to disagree. You give what every poet gives with each new poem, a piece of your heart & character for the world to see. Great job. -Drake
