Can You Fill the Void?

by Alena Harris

Can you fill the void?
Are you the man who can fill the void in me?
Are you capable of filling me with what I need?
Are you able to do this without blaming me, 
   your age or being over heated for your short comings?
Are you able to fill this space to its capacity 
   until you hear my moans of ecstasy?
Are you able to quench my thirst for knowledge?
Or will you accuse me of being too deep 
   just because you canít reach my level?
Are you able to make me laugh?
Or will you accuse me of being dry just because 
   you let the same tired joke go on for too long?
Are you capable of nurturing my dream?
Or will you accuse me of dreaming too big 
   just because your dream is too small?
Can you fill this space without 
   taking more than what you put in?
