Empty Spaces [poem]

When you say family

I stare dolefully

At the empty spaces

In my family tree

I cannot concede memories

Of unbending lights and laughter

Flushed away by darkness and deaths

Brutally searing my joy

 

Some anguish

Must never be unveiled

Some tunnels do not end with light

Words are limited

 

When you say family

I stare dolefully

At the empty chairs

In the dining room
