Emptiness

Poem By Bindu Borle

Perfect ambience, whispers
Dim lights, slow movements
Coffee mugs half empty
A sign of pessimism
Or is something else?
Hollowness inside.
Conversations barely heard
Unfinished topics
Everything reminds of hours spent
Shapes yet shapeless.
Shades yet colorless
Standstill
Haggard bodies
A concave figure
Paralytic beings reaching out
But fail
Cavernous souls. Stony images
No emotions
No responses
Just gray all around
Nothing envelops but sadness and nihilism.

Life is made up of both emptiness and fullness. It depends upon the circumstances in which one is placed. One can enjoy a shade only when he goes in the sun. Nice poem on the emptiness side.
