Emptiness, Loneliness - Poem by Elizabeth Padillo Olesen

Emptiness! Loneliness!
They too find a place
in human hearts
They sneak in any time
and demand attention.

Sometimes we give
them a special place
And sometimes we
simply ignore them
as if they don't exist.

But deep in the
human heart
one can experience
them as whispers
of deep human pain.
