 HOME OF THE FLOWING PEN

Empty Bottles


I search in this place
Deep inside of my chest
Upon shelves of the heart
Only empty bottles are left

I remember a time of pain
Full those bottles did be
But someone has broken them
And they've set me free

I still look for the remnants
Of what once hid inside
Just a trace of the hurt
And the tears I had cried

But search as I may
Not a sign of them found
Just a bunch of empty bottles
I've got lying around

So I clean up the clutter
And I box them away
I think shelves of the heart
Look much better this way
