The Void

I've heard some call it daydreaming When one is lost in a vacant stare. What is she thinking? They ponder... The truth is, nothing's there! I see their lips a moving But I know not what they say. I hear the sound of voices. Yet, I'm somehow far away. At times they don't connect, The information and my mind. There's no input to make sense of; It's like I'm sometimes deaf or blind. This void causes frustration! More common now, less rare. How can I feel so distant When I'm really, very near?

Love the way you've turned 'void and empty' into mysterious and meaningful! Profound penning, Natasha! Happiness and Joy, Gershon

Thank you Gershon. ... I often get lost in a vacant stare but finally a name can be put it... The void! It's amazing where the inspiration comes from... lol

Think we're all guilty of that sometimes when you just drift away and someone says a penny for them and you crash land back to earth. Hope you're weekend is going well Natashsa. Tom

Hi thanks Tom. Yes this is for the " Void " contest. This is how I interpret the challenge. You are so right too, we don't always realise we're drifting till you land on earth again ... Enjoy the rest of your weekend.
