I Am Empty

A Poem by mae23

I am made of glass.

Easy to see through, easy to Break.

I am supposed to be full.

My purpose is forgotten, my purpose is Unfulfilled.

There is nothing within me.

I am filled with air, I am filled with Emptiness.

Short and simple but totally relatable. There comes those times when you feel like you're lost, like you're not exactly unhappy, but it's​ as if nothing matters at the moment. You managed to describe it in few creative words.

I think many people feel this way much of the time, but we go on hiding this fragility under whatever cover we are inclined to display. Good imagery with a sense of determination & resignation (strange contrast, but very realistic).

You stimulate some serious thought with your brevity. Good going!

Take care -Dave

Nice one. Less words but meaningful.
"What can I do for you that is fine
To help you get out from emptiness
Should I pour you some dazzling wine
To bring you a glass of happiness "
