I’ve brought angst and joy to National Poetry Month. Today I bring you melancholy.



Empty house
Empty home
Empty room
Empty poem

Empty sheets
Empty bed
Empty pillow
Empty head

Empty sex
Empty wife
Empty marriage
Empty life

Empty world
Empty town
Empty smile
Empty frown

Empty stomach
Empty food
Empty lunch
Empty mood

Empty spirit
Empty soul
Empty glass
Empty bowl

Empty morning
Empty start
Empty love
Empty heart

Empty eyes
Empty gaze
Empty weeks
Empty days

Empty thoughts
Empty mind
Empty goals
Empty grind

Empty nights
Empty dreams
Empty cries
Empty screams

Empty thoughts
Empty brain
Empty pleasure
Empty pain
