Within. Without.

Something is missing,
There's emptiness where once was pillars.
The passenger has gone,
And i thought I would feel better.
Alas, emptiness now prevails,
The emptiness of years spent chasing clouds.
Now time has grabbed the reins,
Time has grabbed my essence
And sucked it through my veins.
Emptiness prevails within,
A smiling facade without.
Cant feel what's real or even kill
The growing pain of standing still.
I cant go forward and I wont go back,
Im tired of living in a world I turn black.
There's only road in front of me,
But something is gone.
A bridge must be constructed
If i wish to go on.
But how does one build bridges
That one will just soon burn.
How does one build anything
When destruction is all one learned?
