Empty Nothingness

Written by: Eugene Harvey

hollow is the space
between one’s ears
a dark empty void
birthplace of despair

distant is its scream
infectious with fear
a black hole imbued
with emotions bare

infinity’s lost world
of beliefs forswear
a mind conquerable
seeming past repair

inseparable death’s
devil-may-care lair
wherein prayers are
an allegoric affair

immersed in streams
of anxious prayers
a mystery shrouded
in thoughts insincere

simplicity’s hopes
enkindle raw tears
beyond mere rescue
of heartstrings rare

prejudicial rhymes
yield vacuous fare
a psychic rising tide
oft driven to ensnare

this predisposed flesh
tho’ minimally aware
of deception’s vice
yet unable to forbear
