Beautiful But Empty

Keep in mind that

There are plenty of things that 

Are lovely to look at on the outside

While on the inside, they are empty.

These receptacles only hold what others

Put in them. A pretty vase, an elegant jewelry box, 

And even a charming smile, 

Built solely to be decorative.

They all can be empty

At a moment's notice. They are constructed by outside

Sources. Not artisans, but con artists.

They are made to catch people's eyes.

I tell you these things because I have lost so much

Time and energy putting my love into elaborate and stunning

Vessels who took what I gave them and dumped it onto the floor

While they were busy catching the eye of their next target.
