poem-hollow January 31, 2015

Her belly is hollow.

Once it was filled with him,

but she has been excavated

and spun into emptiness.

.

Her head is hollow.

Once it was filled with him,

but she has been desolated

and spun into heaviness.

.

Her life is hollow.

Once it was filled with him,

but she has been devastated

and spun into enviousness.

.

Her hope was hollow.

Once it was filled with him,

but she has been extricated,

and spins into readiness

Her words

weren’t heard

His dreams

were empty screams

Her wishes

were lost in riches

His sight

was bathed in light

Her trials

left her reviled

His loneliness

was his holiness

Their relationship

let sensations slip

They tightly gripped

their well-worn scripts.
