Poems #41 and 42: “An Empty Shell” and “Poetic Insight”

An Empty Shell

I looked upon
the open casket
and stared deeply into
your empty blue eyes
(yes, the lids were closed)
and saw nothing
staring back
at me.

Somehow,
I had hoped
for more.

Poetic Insight

I struggle with a truth
much deeper than the words
I have to express it.
