Depths are not hollow

The depth of my soul

perpetually unfilled

alone and thirsty


whatever comes in

gets terrified of depths,

flows out to fill


another shallow

recipient waiting to

fill imagined depth


depths are not hollow

they have substance, hence I think

of unfilled spaces


enriched by flowing

waters that leave slices

of unabsorbed truth


I am deep, because

I hydrate, not dissolve

to fill and quench thirst.
