empty spaces

May 19, 2010

the blanks.
the voids.

the sadness
that visits
and revisits,
keeps you company
then leaves you alone.

depression
sinking
at times, drowning.
you emerge
soaked
in sadness.

the knot
in your throat
doesn’t let you swallow
the sorrow.
you choke in the anger
of not knowing
the origin
of your melancholy.

you smile
at everyone.
while your spirit
cries…
mourning and grieving
your uncertainty.

your heavy heart
carries emptiness.

forget.
try not to find
the cause of pain.

instead,
rise.

get up.
stand steady.
walk.

move.
on.
through.

fill in the blanks
with love
(you have that in abundance).

  1. …and you give love in abundance. Be sure to receive it. Don’t look back. You are not a victim. You are a conqueror.
