Inside

Composed 6/22/16
Description: Inspired by today’s Daily Prompt: Empty. And if this doesn’t fill you up, another empty-themed poem can be found here.

His smile drew
Each passerby
The twinkling in his eyes
Suggested magic and mystery
Well dressed, well kept
Politeness dripped from his outstretched hands
He was a perfect trap
Until you got inside
Then you realized he’s
Empty

Visions in the Night

Composed 6/16/13
Description: I’ve been feeling a bit lonely today.

the worst result of your sway
is
I admit
not your fault
but that does not mean
I cannot drown
in the steamy pressure of the night
that fogs my mind
with red
with darkness
and squeezes my body all over
then releasing
leaving my heart and soul empty
an emptiness that
lasts and lasts
