The Hollow Heart

Emptiness fills the hollow heart,
descending the love of plenty
to overflow tenderly from
the walls of the gilded spirit

Drawn away by the serpents
of unfeeling, unconcerned
windows that don’t see into
a world of love around them

Life goes on as they say just as the
willow grows her new spring leaf,
so shall love rejected continues
to nourish…me
