THE SADNESS OF EMPTY SPACES

The sadness of empty spaces

And things left behind

Settles gently

Layer upon layer

Like dust around the base of a forgotten flower vase

Unsettles disconcertingly

With gusts of memory

That blow in impulsively

From places you discover for the first time

Within you

 

The sadness of empty spaces within you

Is exquisite, enchanting and excruciating.

What forgot you,

Was given something from you.

Even if it never recognizes it,

Your journey with it, is eternal.

The knowledge of not knowing its destination

Burns and heals with scars

That become foundations

Of your being
