An empty space,filled by light
brings simplicity to life,
the empty heart,fills with pain,
cries out why,again,again,
and still the emptiness remains;
Simplicity forgotten
in complexity will drown,
darkness overwhelms the mind,
despair see nought,with eyes blind;
light fills up the empty space
and illumes the vacant place,
hope blots out disappointment
as our emptiness relents.
Singularity brings forth clarity
on which imagination then flies free.
What are years  but days inter-locked 
one  by one,each  the same but   different 
and yet seen  through  an aging body,remain
unique continuous as we change they ignore
our  passing;flotsam upon a  timeless    sea
Love,where can love
be found as each day
the world spins and 
chaos reigns supreme-
Desire outflanks love
and enchains consequence
 in culture's clash- Beauty
trashed and trivilised
innocence so early lost
beneath false masks
of love crushed
into the g r o u n d

    I wish I knew how to look up your poems on your tube. I'm not much of a you tube person. Can you please give me the ling to this poem.... Brian, thank you for all the nice and lovely visits in the past. After seeing and hearing the things that go on in this world, gives me reason to pray and never take my true poet friends for granted. Enjoy the greatest people and things in life. Have yourself a wonderful and lovely Mother's Day. Lots of Luv & Hugs *LINDA
