I'm Empty

It always comes
I lay down
Everything is quiet
And dark
I breathe in 
I breathe out
I wait
And it comes
Praises, requests, love, thanksgiving
It didn't come

    laurie, we have been chosen by God Almighty to bear the weak, the poor, the needy, and the downtrodden upon our shoulders, because of our inner strength. Sometimes we must taste the bitter seed of emptiness, inorder that God, Himself fulfills us for all of them to draw from us. I love You Laurie. Elijah Prophet.

    If I hear you correctly it came but it didn't feel nearly as good as you'd hoped it would.

    First of all I'm gonna praise you right now for your beautiful writing, and I'm gonna request another writing even if it's only half as pretty as this one, then I want to let you know how everyone here at poetry soup really loves you and all the wonderful thoughts your heart represents to us, and with the warmest of thanks I'm here giving this message to make sure that it did come....Good night....May God keep blessing you...Lawrence in Lou.

    This is sadly familiar. Between the title and your words I can relate. You captured empty so well. Love, Shar

    The voice in this piece screams emptiness. The last two lines reveals a lot. Sad, effective writing.
