Emptiness

with 26 comments

Every time I walk

In this camp of deafening silence

I always feel the very emptiness

Of my wounded heart

 

I want to embrace and kiss with my beloved

I want to sing and dance with my beloved

I want to play and laugh with my beloved

But I can’t for I am far from my beloved

 

She is in the city

I am in the hinterland

She is in the city of temptation

I am in the hinterland of belonging

 

I can’t endure this life of mine

I can’t resist the belonging of my heart

I can’t afford not to feel her love

For I love her deeply

This experience happens to every one of us; even those great poets suffer the same dilemma. But through constant employment of putting the image formed in our minds into verse we will surely hurdle this obstacle.
