Emptiness, Ciutat De Les Arts I Les Ciences, Valencia, Spain

Emptiness

Of all the hardships
Created by the pandemic
It was the emptiness
Of time and space
Which nearly did him in
 
The connectionless void
In which the bump of elbows
Became an act of intimacy
Which made a smile detectable
Only by a gesture of the eyes
 
So he filled the emptiness
With the one thing left to him
 
Love
 
Love not for one or many
Nor even for himself
But for the pure delight
Of existence
 
And that is how he learned
The true nature of
 
Love

Courage ~ Pic and a Word Challenge #180

We span the ages
you and I
across all sense
of time and space
our stories twine

And I can’t say
where it began
or where it ends
or if it ever will

It drives you to
the edge of mad
(where you found me)
but with your ever
growing faith
it’s clear

Life is not so
rational
as you would like

Discontinuous
In fact

Time sometimes goes
from front to back
while space folds in
upon itself
and plops you down
in the middle of
you know not
what

Yet still you stand
amidst the fray
(such dark embrace)
to write these words
you promised me

Love is not so
rational
as you would like

But its beauty
drives you still
