we are less

we are less now, we
have become empty
the fullness known, the
edge to edge volume
that was once who
we were…now gone
forever leaving a hole
a weight of nothing
a longing, a lone echo
fading until we
cannot remember not
being empty, a void
with a face, a voice we
ask and are never
we look at the night,
the dark unfocused
infinity that is the sky
and see for ourselves
there are new stars,
unfolding, created from
destruction they are
forming, reforming,
recreating and wearily
orbiting the center of
loss…the void we are,
the solid emptiness
that some would say
is where our a soul was
but we are less, we
have become empty
