Hunger gnaws at my stomach, Longing for a deeper love The cravings remain unfulfilled, A hollow pit forming Where a gentle heart once was
Embers of hope spark within my heart, Daring to wish for a semblance of change Yet again, my expectations are extinguished As quickly as they came to fruition, A withering flame trying desperately to maintain life
The queen demands perfection In her kingdom of beautiful red roses
Staring in the mirror, Sunken eyes, hollow smile. Gazing ahead, Only a ghost looks back.
Tell me, show me, Something truly sincere "I'm sorry," doesn't mean anything To me anymore
