Empty Space

 older boy and younger boy walking side by side on the beach

What happens with words unsaid

That create the empty space?

Where do we go, how do we tread

When free from keeping pace?


What happens to silent faces

When words don’t crowd the air?

Silent eyes dancing silent traces

When no one is “right” or “fair?”


What happens to broken dreams

When silence fills the place?

Do they disappear into open seams

Or grow to fill the space?
