The Empty Room
by Gina  Murray

So many expectations.
Some met,
Most not 
But it doesn't matter now
Everything's gone.

All that's left is the indentations. 
Indentations on a rug
Where there used to be a couch 
Or a table or a bed.
It doesn't matter what piece of furniture,
They're all gone now

They used to hold such promise
Promise for a future
Hopes and dreams
Hopes and dreams can now be cleared out
For the low price of $19.95 a day.
With the right rented truck...

No one tells you this will happen 
An empty room looks inviting on the first day
It's not really empty 
It's filled with expectations,
So many expectations.
On the last day it just looks empty 
And shows the wear and tear it went through.

The wear and tear the people in it went through.
It just looks lonely.
So many expectations
Not met.
