~ A Vase Without A Base ~

A Poem by waking-life

...false value...

Empty Vessel...

Lacking Knowledge. 


But Barren. 

Lacking A Core.

A Piece.. of Forgotten Artistry. 


 Porcelain of Vanity.

It's true, don't judge a book and all that, the true beauty lies within, or not... :)

strong words... nicely said and written in short write but with a beautiful impact that felt strong but sad "Lacking A Core." loved that.

Beautiful words. I swear I read this about twenty times because it just sounds so amazing all together. Good job.

"porcelain of vanity" - what a line that is!! the empty vessel - the vanity - "forgotten artistry" - you have such a great way with words and here with so few - the word choice was so clever! enjoyed!
