Empty

Empty.

.

 

Empty is what we lack,

The place to be filled with wonder.

.

Empty is what we are missing.

.

For we fill the empty ourselves,

We fill our empty with lesser lovers,

While true love waits outside.

.

Outside ourselves waits what we lack.

.

We lack room  to be filled , having filled ourselves with what we think we are lacking, we then have no room for what we truly need.

.

Empty is what is missing for wonder waits beyond our empty.

.

Wonder and Glory wait beyond our empty.

.
