enough nothing

ENOUGH NOTHING

Nothing
is ever enough
to fill the vacuum
of an empty soul.
When the eyes
no longer shine,
and the smile
is pasted, fake,
when the heart
no longer skips
and the soul
no longer flies …
there is never enough.

There is never enough light,
nor joy,
nor love,
nor freedom.

Such a void
cannot be filled
-maybe-
there is only enough
sadness.
