So sometimes
it’s like wanting to be full
of empty
and if the vacancy arises only
to tempt me
should I decline the invitation?

anyway, empty is okay,
nothing to get in the way
of nothing when there’s
nothing but emptiness.

and sometimes
when you’re empty and want to be full
feeling the pull of attraction,
wanting social intercourse and interaction,
it’s difficult to refuse.
