Truth (or, The Spaces You Leave Behind)

by variousglimpses

If truth is in a book
It is in the moment you look up
From the page, and stare
At the wall, lost
In the space between two lines.

And if truth is in a film
It is in the time you sit
While the credits roll
And what you’ve just witnessed
Keeps you company

And if truth is in music
It is in the moment
When your mind becomes sound
And when your soul vibrates
To the noises you hear.

And if truth is in a life,
It is in the quality of your absence
The spaces you leave behind
When you’re gone.
