Hollow Woman

bytheoncomingstorm©

Hollow woman
Haunted by the memories and the lies
Haunted by the ghosts of the past
By the desperate, never ending cries

Broken promises
Flying silently in the wind
Begging for forgiveness
Aching for it all to end

Haunted woman
Raked with sorrow
Always on the run
Chasing a better tomorrow

Around every corner
Around every bend
The pain hides in waiting
Seeking me out to the bitter end

The face in the mirror
I don't recognize it as me
Old soul, old eyes
Regret is all I see

Chasing a future
A better day
Desperately longing
To put the past at bay

Hunting down the terror
Facing my fears
Looking towards the future
Drying my tears

Hollow woman
Haunted by the memories and the lies
Haunted by the ghosts of the past
By the desperate, never ending cries

I hadn't read TS Elliot's Hollow Man but you pointed it out and I had to go check it out.

Regret gets us no where. This poor woman is better off letting go and moving forward. Not my favorite of yours.
