Fountainhead

I’m full of unshed tears for an ashen world,

Of songs unsung,
Trees unclimbed,
Roads not taken
And paths that may never cross again.

I’m full of oceans, 
Salty air
And a longing for both.

Full of dreams still hiding,
Promises sliding
And apology-barnacles clutching my throat.

So full of regrets and
Of snapshot moments,
Weddings,    
Babies,
My mom’s eyes,
A puppies love.
Depression’s earthquake-rip. 

I’m full of words,
Useless syllables I so longed to weave.
Stories unwritten,
Poems unrhymed, but it doesn’t matter.

I’m full of Life! Of Alpha and Omega,
The Wellspring of Truth!
As I greet the dawn, I seek only Love.

It is in emptiness that fullness abides.
