empty

empty

not full, unoccupied, once
full

spaces, thoughts, relations: this
i shadow as fear
empty calls out blank, coreless, cold, it breathes
chilling

life, (living) requires
full, requires joy, requires pain, tears
full hot tears (soul)

alone, solitude
can be held in sacrament - solitude
is (not) empty

empty (void)

equals

  3. "empty calls out blank, coreless, cold, it breathes/chilling"

    I understand...I sometimes struggle with the empty spaces where once there was activity and the busy-ness of life. Well put, bkm.

  6. This is so beautiful and so frightening so as to imagine the empty spaces and void.

  7. Usually if you scratch around, there is something, if only traces of what was. As always, beautifully done.
