An Empty Illusion

You may not know, as emptiness surrounds you everywhere you go
If you could see behind a different eye,
would it be a friend or a foe?
Pain is smooth at the surface
Triggering the roots from down below
Ceases to hide behind your pride
Following you, as you continue to grow
Glancing upon a broken surface
You hide from your own reflection
You hide from all you know
Emptiness cannot be seen or heard
So you yourself, may never know

    Ralph, thanks for the feedback! I haven't really gotten into studying the different forms of poetry so i wasn't sure what to classify any of them as. I'll be posting more soon. I've written poetry over the past 4 years and for some reason never shared it with anyone.
