Can't Put the Pen Down…

Full of Emptiness


Half empty, half full,
but it’s really not that easy to express.
because everything’s full of something else,
even if it’s only emptiness.

Empty dreams, empty promises too,
empty words and empty eyes.
The sadness is not what they’re emptied of
it’s what fills the void that makes you cry.

Half full, half empty, clouds or silver lining,
but it’s really not that easy to explain.
It’s not what left when it disappeared,
it’s the mem’ry of what trickled down the drain.

Because everything’s full of something else, I guess,
even if it’s only emptiness.
