"Live as if you're going to die tomorrow, learn as if you're going to live forever"(slightly changed, orig. Author unknown)

Wasted, unsure, alone and on fire,
knowing that everything is balancing on a wire,
why does it stay, why the absence
nothing to fill it, no one to say nothing or ask
just how was your day

Even when I wish hard and try
I feel alone and cold
at night, nothing to keep my memories warm,
cause love is like a blanket and it's winter time
and I'm naked in the snow, feeling the burn

Of the ice in my veins as I wish
upon a star that I can find
the one to complete this hollow soul of mine
and then I can finish
other goals of mine

but for now the light in the tunnel
doesn't shine so bright
cause I've given up, I have no fight,
for the cold creepin' into my soul
I just wish this feeling would end

this hollow spot against my side,
the missing arms around my back,
wishing to be filled,
leaving out no crack of my mind,
love is my desire, which it doesn't let me find.

The author's comments:
Just felt like writing this piece, it was actually rather needed. Kinda sounds more like what you'd hear in a rap song(which is still poetry obviously, as it's what it means) than a typical poem that you see, but 'Rap' isn't really a poetry section so I just put it under song lyrics.
