this line seems awkward... as if there is something missing...
emptiness is something most people experience some part of their life. hopefully it is not something they know all of their lives though...
i think you could improve this piece by employing a little punctuation. it would separate your ideas a little better and make it easier for the reader to follow.
youve called this piece the emptiness of the past and im wondering whether there is hope for the present/future...?
so your emptiness here is as a result of another being absent from your life... right?
is it an emptiness that youre able to replace with something else...? [though i am not meaning to suggest that substitution is always the healthiest way of dealing with a problem...]
i think you could have brought more to this piece but it does progress through your ideas well.
