I recent poem I rewrote after taking time away from writing to promote a book of my writing.  You can catch a glimpse inside  here:

There's an emptiness at the heart of any contained space: The air that fills a dome; an unanswered echo. There's an emptiness in my heart That reminds me that All of my ideas are empty: The floating leaves from a fumbled folder. Merely papers littering the sky. This emptiness reminds me How light and flimsy my desires really are and How gently they fall from the sky A confetti of mercy and best intentions. Shreds of emotions, That are in the end, Compared to Nothing, Merely litter from my mind.

Not empty and not litter... but pain reaching out I think. You are a gifted writer.
