Who cares enough to search beyond the emptiness.

Street child


Street child-
To fill the vacancy
your hollow, hazel gaze;
barren stretch of sadness,
where unoccupied
has become
an instant messenger,
unable to locate a server
to deliver your plea
to a world
so preoccupied
that it turns its head
in passing-
as you
pander your pain;
subtle supplication.
