Whats empty?

Nothings empty can always grow

What grew could never had been empty or full

If nothing does not exist

Nothings not empty

Nothings not full

        if everything exists,


    I have no argument

to say I'm empty without  anything 


       is yours

But logically it couldnt fill me for sure

     because neither empty nor full

         I already have something greater than nothing

              if anything exists at all

     I'm sure

if your convinced too

  As a first witness

     To my existence

if anything exists anywhere it  eclipses  any point of view

    all that does exists

                is a shadow

makes a narrower  path

  begin  the second last

       if its I or you and not time

          lends its' point of view

What can you trust for the truth

     .yours or mine

           or an excerpt from The Times point of  view?

Depends on who,

  me or you 

      does lag behind or ahead

    cast a narrower or broader shadow

      make for a bigger or smaller future

       is never empty or full

           of time 

   What ever shall exist

         time does not ever exist 

        without a shadow of either 

             me or you

                eclipse tomorrow

                 from yesterday

           or nothing does exist


It is true  

      In the universe         

    Nothing does not exist


                  nothing exists without me and you

I concur: love it, Eli! Nothing from nothing leaves nothing. If anything after comes to be, let it be. With or without we. Yet…

A revivifying plea/plaint/please poem, with exceptional formatting and shadows of planet-life. I can heave a sigh, combined with another, and feel okay to be how we am now... still striving.
