Poem: Potential in Emptiness

Emptiness is potential
It is the vacant void
That waits hungry
For something
The problem being
Is that it is ready
To accept anything
In the filling
That comes 
From without
Unable to tip
It’s hand to fill
Itself up without
Relying on others
Vision for what
Could be in that space
If they decided to
Fill it with kindness
Or regret or anger
Or to leave it without
Still hungering
Until desperate
For anything

  1. Good stuff. I continue to delight in the shortened lines: brief, hard interjections of emotion made even stronger in their brevity. I love the quiet desperation, the hunger behind it all.
