Empty days

These are the empty days
When the silence between the sentences
Is overwhelming.

The barrenness of my life
Comes into full view.
I am ashamed
Of how little I have left.

Devoid of the sparkle
That others say they see,
How could they know
Iโ€™m only pinning up my broken smile?

The silence is consuming
Reminding me of what I have lost.
Filling cups with nothing
I take a drink
These empty days are all Iโ€™ve got.

    1. Thanks for saying so Radhika. I wrote this a few weeks ago and have honestly been hesitant to post such a heavy piece, but you are right… We all experience such moments ๐Ÿ’œ๐Ÿ˜Š

  1. Pinning up your smile. Wowee. Brilliant. So sad but have had this experience too, a lot. Please donโ€™t hesitate to post heavier stuff. I love to read it.
