Rather than describing emptiness as a lack of something inside the heart, you describe it as a manifestation of pain. The idea that emptiness is actually the presence of something unwanted paints an amazing image. It really breaks down the idea of what pain really does. It not only causes hurt, but its presence can drive away everything else. Great job, especially for a Haiku! Report abuse Request to Delete SaphiraBrightscales said...
