My heart is empty, the tears are gone.
I’m left with a void, they were wrong.
Time has healed nothing, my hurt remains.
It’s just an emptiness, not the same dull pains.
I’ve lost your memory, it slipped away.
I miss you still, to this very day.
I cannot cry, for my tears have dried.
Four long years I have tried and tried.
I hurt today for the woman I was.
The woman you damaged, did you even think once?
That the pain you inflicted would last this long?
That I would end up being the one called wrong?
