Can emptiness be filled with anything?
It must. A vacuum sucks,
and black holes are attractive;
but can sorrows, that are abstract,
fill a concrete emptiness?
Let’s stick to philosophic symbolism,
which only can make all things possible.
Indeed can sorrows be so great
so as to fill a universal emptiness,
since there are no greater human feelings
than the sentiments of grief and sorrow.
So indeed can sorrow fill up anything
and even the most universal emptiness,
which maybe only sorrows can fill up.

I like the concept here aurelio but the over use of emptiness and sorrow doesn’t really work for me, try and find different words or show the reader an image that depicts the word. Best Keith
