Empty Memories

I have a bunch

Of empty memories


Moments from the past

That aren’t what they could’ve been


You see,

I used to think it took courage to fight,

But I’ve come to realize

That real courage

Is needed to love someone.


Fighting is easy

But loving…


That takes a far more special kind of courage.


These memories

That lay broken

They could’ve been with someone that I loved

But no,

They're empty

Hallow

And broken


All because


I am a coward who doesn’t know how to love.
