Hollow Man

I filled my void with emptiness
took each bright dream and pinched it tight 
between finger and thumb
extinguished like stars at dawn

I filled my void with emptiness
nailed hope to the floor with a spear
and walked away
its hideous mewling possibilities
evaporating like dew

I filled my void with emptiness
it's overflowing with deeds not done
a rubble of hollow words from broken promises
