5 Poems Inspired by Poetic Asides Prompt - Empty -

~ 1 ~
Spent

Every breathed kiss 
each for granted
taken embrace
I love you, I love  you 
I love you whispered
that last night of 
sixty-seven year grace  
grabbing bare shoulders
held hotly face to face
release pouring darkness
unrelenting into emptied space 

 ~ 2 ~
No More

Bottom of cup
Held straight up
All done!
What fun!
Life empty
Of complexity

~ 3 ~

Marshall Thurgood
name inverted
still recognized 
for all he stood

~ 4 ~
The
overflowing
cup 
runneth
no
more 

~ 5 ~
Those Eyes

Brightly she turned in that sweet navied night
sparkling in her own reflected starlight

Turning, to him
with all that could be

Here beginning, at last, at last, finally
right here and now in his father's Chevy

Images of starlets soft in her head
turning toward love, meeting eyes glitter dead

  1. So many ways to be empty. I adore the first and last pieces, filled with imagery and emotion. Came by from Poets United.
