Empty

She...  
Takes all that  
I give...  
My thoughts..  
My words ..  
Where I live.  
Fountain from  
where life springs,  
selfishly hoarding  
everything.  
Greedily accepts  
each loving word...  
Never understanding  
truly what is heard.  
Her ego..  
draws from it..  
takes it in...  
feeds off of it,  
Blind of the sin.  
She takes so  
much from me.  
Siphons from me  
life's energy..  
Leaves me weak..  
almost dying there;
Heart and soul  
opened...bare.  
Yearning for something..  
a small return...  
but there is nothing,  
absent the burn.  
She has taken  
all...  
She....
has left me  
empty.
