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 Copyright © 2011 By Caryl S.

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
