Emptiness

My mother said sometimes the voids left

When we take terrible things out of our lives

Are worse than the things themselves.

We desperately try to fill them up;

Actively seek out ways to feel whole again,

Even if for a moment we know we’ll regret.

My mother said when we let go of horrible things

We have to be careful with the emptiness

They leave behind.
