There’s such an empty,/
hollow feeling, no words come/
out except “What if?”.

Acting Hollow And Empty: Revolutionary ConTEXTing Poem

August 4, 2011

The feelings
And desires
we profess
With deep impassioned words
And emotions
Seem hollow
and empty
When we continue to act
As though they are
hollow
And empty.

I Miss You Hollow: Romantic IMprov Blogging Lament

July 25, 2011

After he sends
sunrise reflections,
and plans,
and dreams,
and musings;

After asking her questions,
then calling,
and scheduling
and hoping to talk
and waiting …
and waiting,
… and waiting …

her short,
late text
recounting a busy day,
(too busy to contact him?),
and a recharging phone
(no other phones work?),
and a late-night visit
to parents,
(so no talking is possible,)
then a terse “Good night!”
is the response received.

Knowing how
the romantic
l o n g s
for contact,
for words spoken
and written;

knowing how
the last few days
had transformed hope
into dreams;
wishes
into action;

in that context
of longing
and waiting,
and pained anguish
and suspense,

“I want you”
and
“I miss you”
ring
hollow
on his
heart.
