The Stomach's Emptiness

theartdubaiblog:

By Sharanya Kunnath

There’s a hidden sweetness
in the stomach’s emptiness.

We are lutes, no more, no less.
If the sound box is stuffed
full of anything, no music.

Be emptier and cry like
reed instruments cry.
Emptier, write secrets with
the reed pen.

(Poem by Rumi)

do you ever get in those moods where you don’t feel like reading and you don’t feel like being on the internet and you don’t feel like watching a show and you don’t feel like sleeping and you don’t feel like existing in general
