h e l p

a profound loneliness
and chronic emptiness
a sinking feeling in your stomach
waiting for the drop
a heaviness in your chest
but of what?

an outline of a person
no one’s coloured in between the lines
hollow
every movement feels like effort
and is painfully slow

who do you turn to in these maddening times,
but to a face on a screen?
it’s no replacement for human contact
resisting the urge to desperately scream…

CAN ANYONE HEAR ME?
I AM ALONE
AND IF I WASN’T HERE
WOULD ANYBODY KNOW?

One thought on “h e l p

  1. Hold on tight Storms. You are not alone. I can hear you, in that I often read you with great interest, because you are such a fab writer.You might feel hollow right now, but you are just as worthy of love as anyone and everyone else on the planet. Even thought it might not feel like that right now.
