Half Empty, Half Fool

what i find

i cannot keep

for when i'm fixed

there springs a leak


not water, oil, gas;

it's worse

it's feelings,

when they drip

it hurts


there lay 3 bandaids

at my feet

duct tape, glue­­

they're all too weak


to cover cracks

to close the hole

to sew the stitches

in my soul


i play it cool

but that's the joke

for what you see

is but a cloak


the overflow­­

you'd think aplenty

yes, i'm full

but full of empty
