There comes a time,
Where my words stop short,
And have nowhere else to go.

You do that to me,
Just as bad as I do it to you.

Here we are,
With nothing left to say.
Hoping the silence will fill the void,
That our lies have left behind.

Sympathy and guilt wonít do anything but hurt us more.
Itís gone...
As long as we donít think about it.
The longer we stand here,
The harder itís going to be for one of us to leave.

...The door wasnít even that loud.

Perhaps the saddest thing is,
Iíll still be here waiting for you to turn around.

THIS is very good.

The line about the door, really makes this poem hit hard, and the way you set this up is good, giving power to the right lines.

Awesome my dear daughter. I admire the review given by Sage. Her words have such wonder her name is Sage.
Great and deep as per your way of thinking.

Mariah, this is such a sad write directly from a hurting heart, not quite broken but slowly dying all the same. YOu captured all too well what it is like to watch love die a slow lingering death.

Reviewed by Sandie Angel
You have written this in the best way. I like the ending the best.

Confronting existential moments such as break-ups, fear, and exhaustion lets us experiment with the feasibility of new experience as opposed to the feeling of inadequacy and the fear of failure. Many times Empty is the door that opens when another closes and is a creative product of paintings, writings, films, designs, pottery, theories, and other artistry. Wait no longer, Mariah, creativity awaits!
