Something

Something
Brushed the edges
Of my hungry senses 
And I bit, but there was nothing
But a memory laden with needing
A reflex uselessly twitching
And a mind crying for
A touch... a voice...
Something

Thank you! I love that - “fills the brain” - I guess that’s what we’re trying to do with this poetry lark!

Thank you Andrea! Yes I was trying to capture a mood rather than anything too specific - glad that came through. Your support means a lot as ever.

Oh, Nina.. an unquenchable thirst of need, an insatiable hunger of the heart.. a lonely longing void that aches to be filled.. Such awesome emotional imagery of soulful yearning. I love it! Best wishes for a win! ~Susan

Thank you so much Susan... as I just replied to CayCay, I’m not really sure where it came from - I just wrote down “Something” and out it came. I’m glad to say I’ve never felt quite this desolate.

This is GOOD. Best of luck in the contest.

I know what you mean - I kinda like it, kinda hate it because it makes me feel empty. Not sure where it came from... it just exploded out of the word “something”! Thanks CayCay!
