Hollowness

Your love is underwhelming

and I am underwhelmed,

by the tokens and the gestures

that seem so polite but

really are the surface

of a very empty cave,

filled with echoes and darkness

and not the hint of breeze.

 

Or is it that you do not

see the hollowness below

and the surfaces that you give me

are the only one you know?
