EMPTY
by Muffy


(For L.A.L.)

it’s amazing
how an
empty heart
can be
filled quickly
with a
dream’s kiss
gentle embrace
a smile after
a long day.

it’s amazing
how a
heart so
full can
be emptied
so quickly
by a
harsh word
work boots
stomping
on awakening
feelings.

Muffy a.k.a. Melissa Prunty Kemp is a writer living in Atlanta, Georgia USA.
