The Elegy of My Emptiness

Death is not a thing I like to think of But death is a thing, like anything in this world, but it's not something we love Now, why is that? Why don't people like death? It seems to leave us breathless When we hear that someone died, in a school, or in a theater, or on the street Instead of helping, it seems that in this day and age, people just tweet This poem is titled "The Elegy of My Emptiness," and an elegy is written about a death But don't hold your breath I'm not dying, no one close to me has died I wrote this in an effort to try something new, but it seems a may have needed a guide Long poems like this are not my specialty I think I like haikus especially The only thing that died Is my emptiness inside
