~ Poetry by me ~

 

Otiose

A glove without a hand inside,
A puppet lacking strings;
A page that is not writ upon,
A raven with clipped wings;

A fireplace without the fire,
A stage without the show;
A broken piece of shattered glass,
A watch that does not go;

A violin without its bow,
A ship without a crew;
A vessel waiting to be filled:
A heart devoid of you.
