The café is empty

and my cup about the same.

I fill the page to make up

for the emptiness for which I’m to blame.

No matter what I write,

the page still seems blank

and the words mean nothing

since when you left, my heart sank.

The words that I choose

may hold no meaning for me

but those who read them

give meaning I cannot see.
