Gone

Empty room as backdrop
Dollar Photo Club

That empty feeling

The echo of my voice

You gave me no choice

Emptiness is so cold

~

You know that space

“Where there was something

And suddenly isn’t”… anything

Emptiness is so cold

~

Though I don’t understand

I will carry on my own way

There is nothing left to say

Emptiness is so cold

Poetics – Choose a Line

Mary is hosting at Poetics~ Choose a Line this time and she has introduced, at least, to me, a poet named Naomi Shihab. I Love her work and encourage you to read her. The poem that Mary chose is, “Burning the old year”. I chose the line highlighted above but let me tell you, it was hard to choose. Here’s the link to read her poem which leaves my words in the dust but we try. πŸ™‚

Thank you, Mary!

I have been writing all my life but for the most part, it has been a secret. My parents did not believe writing was a good way to earn money so I hid my poems. Then one day, I wanted to comment on an essay that a friend had written and found myself with a blog. That quiet whisper inside said, "You can write your poetry and no one will ever know.". I knew nothing of followers and the like at that time. So, here I am trying to learn my craft and enjoying every moment of it. My personal details are, I'm 57, married for 39 years, have one grown son who is God's gift to us and last but not least at all, I'm a Baha'i which basically means that I love all humanity.

  1. Worship & respect for 3 prophets broadens the horizons of love, tolerance, & sensitivity. It is remarkable, but for each of us, after experiencing the dark sphere you describe, we still have the capacity for both healing & finding new joy in someone else.

  2. My FRiEnD.. i have been to a place
    so cold.. so empty that i screamed
    to God to let me feel
    even a scream..
    beyond sadness..
    beyond grief..
    beyond
    paper thin
    existence..
    1000 years
    in one second
    of REAL HELL
    ‘hear’ on Earth..
    but Heaven iS Real
    and now too.. and perhaps
    if the price of thaT is HeLL..
    it iS
    worth
    aLL of those
    thousands
    years
    iN
    one
    second
    tHere.. my friend..
    a UniVerse within
    to live or escape
    i
    wilLL
    to Live
    and FeeL more
    than eva’ before..
    as that first bully boy
    in school who told me
    only Queers smile was
    DEAD
    WRONG..
    WinKS..
    LOVE
    WiNS
    as KinG
    of the UniVerse
    of hUman miNd/boDy alWays
    now.. iN eternity of Love iS..
    with
    ZERO
    FEAR.. GIVING
    SHARING NOW
    NEVER ENDING
    FOREVERMORE
    NOW..
    iT iS… REAL..:)
