Hollowed

Posted on

hollow tree

On the surface

Embellishments adorn you

Reflecting on your own reflection

Bouncing rays of admiration

Throwing out shiny lures

To feed the braggadocio

But I see through you, my friend

You are pitted

Character is simulated

Substance has been excavated

All that matters, taken

All that remains, meaningless

You are hollow

  1. A bitter sweet expression. Very effective.

  2. We definitely were on the same wave length. Your poem is descriptive. I feel the emptiness and chill.
