Empty Space


it is but hollowness
a wary ache of emptiness
that permeates today

euphoric songs nolonger
ring out joy in filling
brimming spheres

the laughter’s gone
silence sterns an atmosphere
of anxious dread 

you vacillate between
dismay and fates you fear
for things you cannot have

what may have been
opaque returns chimeras to
disgrace an empty space
