Bob’s Journey…

IV. EMPTINESS

After the friendship was over, I believed I could make similar friendships based only on transparency and acceptance of each others’feelings. However, I was wrong. I tried on several occasions but nothing came of it. When I realized I would never experience such states again, I was in despair. It felt like a huge cavern had been carved out in my being to hold the fulness I had stumbled upon, and now it was empty. I didn’t believe it would ever be filled again.

NEVER AGAIN

Never before had life been awakened so fully
  Transfused into sunglow of two souls akin.

Never before had acceptance transcended such difference
  And danced in eyes that coukd not pretend.

And never again will the cold of my soul
  feel the warmth of the whole.
And never and never again.
