Empty box

They told me once
To build a box
Stay in it
And never leave

But instead I built a city
With empty streets

Cause no one goes
Down every lane
It’s too far out there
For them to walk

It’s nothing like
Their little box

  1. Loved your intriguing ‘Empty Box’ poem… and I think you would appreciated this piece that, Ali Grimshaw from the ‘Writing Circle’, sent me last week..

    ” Someone I loved once gave me
    a box full of darkness.

    It took me years to understand
    that this, too, was a gift.”

    “The Uses of Sorrow” by Mary Oliver, from Thirst, 2007
