Empty Cupboards

Your ashes are fatal,
I’m surrounded by deceit,
And when you want to,
You haunt me in my sleep

My soul is sliced open,
Blood purging,
My heart is racing,
My body surging

I was never yours,
And I don’t know why you can’t see it,
Read my fucking mind,
I don’t need it

I need more attention,
Maybe so,
But how do I know what you say,
Is true about where you go

I like the fervent productive state I’m in,
When you’re not around,
And there’s no one to blame,
I’m bound to be a better person just the same

Leave in a hurry,
Don’t say a word,
Leave me alone,
You don’t have to worry

This relationship we have will never be true,
I’ve faked it long enough,
She deserved better than you,
I know it’s been tough, but we’ll make it,
But I can’t stand you when I know you don’t care,
Don’t spend your time on something when your soul is never there

We’ve a small budget,
And you wouldn’t go under,
The cupboards are like your heart,
There but empty, and you wonder,
What went wrong, so you try to be,
The man you were meant to be,
The person that should have been a father to me.



About humblefoot

Kyle Fisher (who often uses the alias Logan Rowley online and in his writing) has been enjoying writing since he was just 8 years old. His first formal publication was at the age of 13. He is now a spiritualist and openly queer author, perpetually searching for inspiration to create and learn more about the world around him. He is always drawn to the simplicity and uniqueness that life has to offer. He doesn’t identify with labels or socially constructed ideas about how the world should be. He believes that the world is your oyster, and that we all project our own destinies with the thoughts we choose to harbour about the universe. He is an idealistic, spiritualistic hippie who is just trying to find his place in this world, crafting each word to leave his mark, and promote love and equality among all people.
