empty enough

peel me back
and let you in
this place is empty

I asked for this
(though honestly, I didn’t want it)
for me, you weren’t enough
aren’t enough

but my clutching, my clawing
my anxious, my desperate –
won’t work anymore

it leaves me.

empty
broken
terrified

it leaves me.

peel me back and let you in
this place is empty enough
