Love, friendship, companionship, understanding;
hate, enmity, negotiation, compromise.
Decisions: full cup, empty; bereft, overflowing.
You walk in a vacuum, willingly unknowing+ . . .
Ambling without compass in self-imposed boredom,
you saunter through morass of empty entrainment
without even a penny in your beggardly cup,
against the sidewalk of forever, eternity whispering . . .
I walk by slowly, seeking the faintest glint
of anything worth retrieving from destruction,
finding only seared conscience, waiting
for next show to fill the terrible emptiness inside . . .
swept clean, wasted time's bones strewn about,
you just outside the door, in empty denial within
you never explored while not searching for truth
and the One Who created all . . .
One question . . . Why?
