Too Empty.

I lost the last of my four cats on monday, he was seventeen. Now its just my dog Harvey and I and too much emptiness.


    The day wounds you awake,

    to draw her shutters across

    the light.

 

    And oh for a voice

    that’s not in your head.

 

    Things..So many things

    calling

    yet fall unasked.

 

    As you slip,

    breath after breath

    towards

    the abyss.

Oh for a voice that’s not in your head, love this line, it resonates with me. The abyss is deep indeed.

Pain stitched in ever word, one of mine will not last the year. Great expression throughout Sue. I feel your loss.
