A true emptiness
is a forsaken goodbye.
A missing piece
shields the truth.
The only clarity

is foolish and simple.

In years I have unfolded
the vast layers of being,

the uncertainty witheld
by this guilty conscience.

This soul,
it lusts for belonging.
Digging holes in the universe.
Searching for good will.
But the transparency of being,
it shields my inner self.

Scattered are the thoughts of mine,
dying to be heard...
