Of empty words… #WednesdayVerses

of empty words…
and yet I believed
they were full –
full of meaning,
full of truth;
full of a spark
I had seen before;
perhaps I sought
the joy of a past
I always treasured,
never measured;
even when I knew
they were empty,
I chose to believe;
but the joy of old
had been emptied
long long before.

Poetry & writing are to me, a breath of fresh air in a life that is sometimes covered by the smoke of sorrow or self doubt. They also become the sweets I share to celebrate when life offers me a reason to. But most of all, they are to me, my life. For each word I write is a piece of my heart, a thought that just had to find its way into the world.
