    Wow and tender, so real. Thanks Caleb for your kind words about my work. Your wife might love this true story about Savannah from my web site blog: Let me know what you think. From one Georgia lady to a talented southern gentleman. Trish

    Truly beautiful. T.S. Elliot comes to mind. I cannot read the word "hollow' without his work coming to mind.

    Unlike several commentators below, I've not read this before today. It is haunting and sad, with touching notes here and there, about your grandfather for example. Still, I seems to me that for a person of such apparent cheer and good will, you are being awfully hard on yourself. Guilt is an albatross. perhaps writing such a poem as this lessens the burden. I hope so... jack

    This is one of the most hauntingly brilliant pieces I have ever had the pleasure of reading! I believe that this without doubt will in part strike a bone with everyone that takes the time to read it.

    Hi Caleb, I see this is number 1 on the "Top 100 Most Recent List". It was a pleasure to read this fine work of poetry again. Your quality work touches the soul. It confirms to me that we all relate to each other in some way on this journey of life. Have a great journey :)

    Train of thought that's magic in it's honesty, could be that start of Message in a Bottle 2 movie script--the kind where all the gals sit around when it's read and say, I wanna meet this guy!!

    Hey, I just noticed that this poem is #1 on the Top 100 Recent list. Cool!! Loved reading this one again. (P.S. I'm not a big fan of summer either... at least, not when the humidity attacks me.)

    Dropped by to say hello, read your poem again and it was like reading it for the first time. I think it can be experienced many ways depending on state of mind. You should be very proud of this piece.

    Hey you got Nothing for me. haha. Playing on the title of your fabulous poem I already read. Waiting for more poetry, Caleb. So you are busy? Can you remember the one or two poems of yours that you told me I had not read? I think I deleted that soupmail!

    It's life. Perhaps not the way we wanted it played but in a resonated destiny, you are not alone. Pathos is your partner.

    A very powerful and moving piece, Caleb. I'm no therapist, but you're awfully hard on yourself.. Jack

    Caleb, this is such an honest and introspective look at what most of us would loved to have penned as well as you did. I think the hardest part of life we have to deal with is regret.. that and not wanting to acknowledge, or share our thoughts enough for others to understand the 'real' us.

    What can i say?Im speechless..I ve been there too and somehow or another i ll always be.There are always things i regret doing in previous moments..words are failed to u failed to give..That s my empty part of the glass..Now its time to appreciate the full part..Im sure thats how it is with you too.Nothingness can destroy our wholiness or it can help us realize we re human enough to be understood.Your words are full of emotion..touched my heart and beyond..Going to my favs:)

    You did it again, Caleb....fused together purple prose and free verse in the way that I like it(just my opinion about the hybridization). This poem hurts so good to read -- man, I love how you churned-out these thoughts with such festering, open-wound honesty. Makes one feel more human just to read this. You are definitely on a roll. Again I am impressed.
