In The Empty Space


In the empty space
between taking that breath
and saying those words

The brevity of light
and the gravity of darkness
embodied the finite emptiness
that fell between the question
and the answer

In the empty space
between taking that breath
and saying those words

The gravity of darkness
and the brevity of light
embodied the infinite distance
that bled like a shadow
between you and I

Hope faded like a flame
in a tidal wave of pain
Hearts shattered like broken glass

Still clinging to each other
as the walls crumbled
and the storm breathed its last
