We Talk

We talk to fill
an abyss:
an expansive desert,
a bottomless ocean
of emptiness
with overflowing emptiness.
It occupies infinite space
yet overflows when filled.
What an insatiable emptiness!


  1. I've known people like that, those who talk to fill emptiness....yet only encounter MORE emptiness as they speak.

  2. Stark words that beautifully express the infinity of emptiness. Great read!

  3. So much truth in such a small bit of verse. Perfect approach to your topic.

  4. Oh I so know what you mean. I notice how some people seem to have to make a lot of noise in order to know they're alive. Makes me appreciate silence:) Good poem.
