Hollow Men - Poem by Rees Millstead

For so long ive been reaching for a breath
but Im not able to taste it,
To long ive been drinking to death
but not able to make it,
So long Have I needed the flesh
but unable to replace it,
How long have I needed my love
but not able to face it,
Some people are not ment for this world but still we are placed in it,
We shouldnt be left here because we have no grace in it,
No need for this world because we have no faith in it,
Its like im watching my life go past
but im not able to chase it,
We are born like you but deny'd so many things in it,
No love..No hate..No fear..No sorrow
We are the hollowd men...that have no tommorrow.
We burn with the desire but feel no pain
Every day we die but tomorrow...we rise again.
