:: prose ::

Emptiness...
comfort, complacent, contempt, contorted
how did our lives become so distorted
a thousand miles from where we started

what we seek, what we find, what we hide
the swell of nothingness that eats inside
and swallows whole our soul and all in sight

and still we pretend to attend, to hold fast
as a man caught in the storm clutches the mast
praying that dear God might save us at last

from the truth, from ourselves from everything
and nothing at all
and the emptiness that resounds and rebounds
it echoes and crumbles the walls
and pearched high above, we stumble, and
tumble and fall
