Lilac Wine


A Heart Full Of Emptiness - Poem by Lilac Wine

An empty sailing vessel
Battered and bruised wrecked too far out for salvage
Just another broken heart

Full of emptiness
Drowning in lost pleasures of life
But so difficult to breathe


Oceans of tears washing up onto the shores of a lost soul
Memories of a time like driftwood
Once precious but now just waiting to be washed away with the tide


He stands alone on the beach his feelings pour out to her
The only one he has faith in for she alone understands she alone hears
She alone listens to the voice of his cries to the voice of his heart


She carries his feelings to the depth and buries them where no mortal sees
She washes over his pain with her healing whispers he alone hears
She sets him free of his love

    the juxtaposition of [full/emptiness] is a meaningful poetic stroke (Report) Reply

    Wow, that's love! I feel the emotion in this poem. The beach and the sea and the depths, all great analogies for a private, wistful love. (Report) Reply
