this lack

this lack that i feel in my soul
cannot be filled by you
though I have tried to pour
the sweet words of others into it
to see if that might hold

rather, this void, was created
long ago- a mere reflection
of a longing never filled,
a wound never healed,
a seed never sown…

and the more i hide, the more i know
that i am the one holding
the mirror against myself
fueling the hole, reminding me
that I am just not enough…
