The difference between sadness and sorrow are slight,

As they both portray the same emotion. 

The difference between sadness and sorrow is not found in the emotion, 

It is within the feeling. 

Sadness is sadness, 

A generalized blue and black. 

One who feels no happiness, 

One who does not give back.

Sadness is emptyness that has always been empty. 

It is the hope that one day, 

It would be filled.

 

Sorrow is red, 

Deep and dark. 

Swallowed with anger and frustration, 

Drowning beneath blacks and blues. 

Sorrow is searching longingly,

For something that once filled you,

And does not anymore. 

It is emptyness, 

Where it was not once empty.

The difference between sadness

And sorrow is slight.

Both may be empty in the end,

But the state of the emptyness 

Before is what defines the hole 

Left behind.
