Hollow words

I read a passionate and angry post earlier today and it elicited an emotional response from me. I haven’t been able to put the subject matter out of my head all day and it’s left me feeling drained and bereft. No amount of distraction has been able to fill the hollow feeling that is mine today.

It’s only 10.00 on Saturday night but am going to bed where I’ll pop a fluff movie (The Holiday) into the DVD player and hope it’ll lull me off to sleep. When I wake this crater inside me will be filled with my dreams of tonight and life can resume. The Holiday

For now I’ll get some words down which might help to empty me of this absent feeling.

Green coat bloodied,
Dying, twisting, falling
Bare arms reaching for the concrete sky
Beseeching, more sun
Imploring, more time


  1. I hope you can get past that empty feeling soon.

  2. That must have been some post for it to carry through your whole day. Hopefully, you'll put it into perspective, and be able to remember, but not feel so overwhelmingly hollow.

  3. I am so sorry Lou. I hope you are feeling better today.

    I too pop in The Holiday when I'm feeling down...I find it's a breath of much-needed fresh air.

  4. Not much anyone can say when you're having a day like that. But-I'm sorry you're feeling so empty; that is perhaps the worst of all feelings. I know I hate it when I feel that way.

  5. Thanks y'all for the words of support. It's a new day and though it's rainy and cool, things are much more in perspective today.


Make my day and leave a comment. C'mon you can do it.
