Your voice rang hollow

with the words,

that you had packed

for me, in neat and tidy

circumstance they mocked

all I had been.

And yet they offered

insight into the man you were,

and opened to reality;

sincerity deferred.

If I had not been brave enough,

to fall into their depths,

I never would have known

the truth, or found self-confidence.

Within the echoed callousness,

of those brief, thoughtless words,

the truth took me in hand

and led me through the door.


HOLLOW (adjective)


: having an indentation or inward curve : concave, sunken
