Trust the empty spaces.
A lack of love.
Feeling cut off.
Tempting to fill them with:
Endless internet hours.
Longer hours at work.
Drowning it in alchohol.
Hard to trust the empty spaces.
Difficult to believe.
That they’re there for a purpose.
“And then I have a secret. Did you know what will happen if you eliminate the empty spaces from the universe, eliminate the empty spaces in all the atoms? The universe will become as big as my fist…Similarly, we have a lot of empty spaces in our lives. I call them interstices..I work in empty spaces” ~ Umberto Eco
