Intimate emptiness

intimate emptinessYou knew several definitions for empty, why wouldn’t you? you were the best English student two years in a row from olumawu primary school. Empty meant unoccupied, just like papa’s room since he met aunty Sonia. Empty was deprived of content like mama’s bottle of gins. Yet you never realized empty could be so intimate, so loud, ringing continuously in your ears and thumping in your chest, as clear as pator Tundes call for salvation every Sunday.
