Whenever I process the code below, I recieve the output; Query was empty. What does this mean, how can I fix it?

PHP Code:
<?PHP
@include 'include/mysql.php';
@include 
'include/global.php';

$cur_date date("d/m/y H:i:s"time());

mysql_query("INSERT INTO MESSAGES (RECIPIENT, FROM, DATE, SUBJECT, MESSAGE, STATUS, TYPE)
VALUES (
$_POST[RECIPIENT]$_POST[FROM]$cur_date$_POST[SUBJECT]$_POST[MESSAGE], 1, 2)");

$result mysql_query($query) or die(mysql_error());

?>
Cheers.
