Still things sound full in their own right.

    Emptiness might crawl at times,
    complicated mind and its ways, mind is a mystery, even in the midst of joys you feel empty.

    Meticulous arrangement of things around us gives us satisfaction but it might not be able to forestall the grave impact of emptiness in life seeping through or loneliness. Thanks Sumita ji. (Report) Reply
