empty, i am empty

you are empty too.

i am a space which you will fill

with odds and ends.

peices of string,

a clock radio,

a book

that wouldnt quite fit on the shelf.

trivial things

which held meaning once

that have been forgotten.

empty, i am empty

you were empty too.

what will i fill you with today?

nouns, verbs, adjectives,

a strain of your favourite song,

compliments and platitudes.

perhaps a daisy,

for the girl who hates flowers.

i will give you these things

so that we may remain

empty,

we are empty.
