K.S. 6/2/11
Empty Hands
You invade my dreams,
My thoughts,
My smiles,
My life,
But, I’m left with empty hands.

You are my good,
My bad,
My wins,
My loses,
But, I’m left with empty hands.

You are the best idea,
Best concept,
Best inspiration,
Best excuse,
But, I’m left with empty hands.

You are in my eye,
The softest skin, that’s not touched,
The fullest lips, that are not kissed,
The deepest…aaah, never to be known,
But, I look down, and I see that I’m left with empty hands.

The manuscript Blue Lines is the fictional coming of age narrative of a young California woman Key Yemaya Walker, and her 2 year growing journey through school, love, and life period piece, written by Kenneth Suffern, Jr., taking place at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill between the years of 1997 – 1998. Loosely based on true events, and experiences during that time, told through the eyes and voice of the main female protagonist, a freshman first attending the school.
