Filling

Filling

A Poem by Fanicia E.
"

Can't shake the feeling.

"
I've filled my life with God 
And prayers and pleas. 
With family.
Love.
Hope
And ecstasy. 
With song and color.
Music and dance.
Kindness and compassion
And scalding romance.
And yet
Still
When things settle down
And the quiet creeps in
The emptiness is there
Ready to greet an old friend.

Beautiful and primarily serene words! Faith and love surrounded by what matters but.. There you are, content and coping but.. still patiently waiting for what you need rather than merely want.

Your poem is a prayer, dear friend.. and surely deserves an answer. Thank you so much for sharing. Wishing you everything your heart and spirit calls for. Keep safe.

This is a poem from an open air, wooden pulpit; yet, the tentacles of worship and compassion are not mutually exclusive. They happen within the same eyestalks and under the same sundew. "Never hit on a church girl" was a wound that church girls carried under their little hats to Sunday school, even when desire was fastened to the tendril's
of their spirit:

"when things settle down" was like a horn player in a jazz combo changes who from "standard" to the blues. Since nothing ever replaces the conditions of the former. Tired of speaking in tongues, my mother would kick off her 'church' heels, unbuckle her girdle hooks and catch up on her daytime stories. Perhaps the "Emptiness" you speak of here is the resolve to be less secular in this experimental world of love and friendship.In other words, God wants all of our attention on Sundays but we want all of everyone's attention on Monday morning, lol. You're doing something in poetry that takes decades to master. How to prevent the wounded soul from closing entirely. Beautifully written....dana
