Hollow Talk

Engulf me.
I don't want
Shallow waters,
Fragments.
I've had enough of hollow talk

Romance doesn't usually tolerate half measures. Yes, we do want to be swept away by love.

This is a wonderful poem ... clean, wonderful economy of words that perfectly illustrates "hollow talk" Bravo

At times when we find everything meaningless , really we wish to be far far away from this world.

Hollowness is not what I would desire either.

Glad to see you again at Poets United!

Gabriella said...

We do not want hollowness yet it takes faith to accept to be engulfed.

So many platitudes are just that, we want all of our truth to be expressed.

Björn Rudberg said...

To be hollow and shallow is not want we want.. engulf us with deepness.

It may help to tell them off. That way the relationship sustains with lots of respect. Nicely Maria!
