Empty

Empty
like bottled air
clinging to nothing real,
except to slippery inside walls
of space

Empty 
like heart chamber
holding on to first love
bouncing back and forth, side to side
then gone

Empty 
like nerve feeling
continued ceaseless pain
until all feeling is dissolved
or cold

    This is an awesome description of the way it feels to suffer from deep depression, Caryl. The emptiness seems endless. Many of us have fallen into this pit of despair, but thankfully we usually rise up to find the light of hope again. My mother lived most of her life this way. To feel "full" again, we have to find motivation within ourselves. A favorite for me; it reminds me so much of Mom. Love and blessings for a happy Easter, Carolyn
