Hollowness

 

 

Pretty young girls

Playing at being women

Full of rivalry

Friendship is rare

Empty heads

Lonely starving souls

“A like” ignites their fire

“No likes” show a bit more

Childhood lost

Technology is the thief

Parenting time

Replaced with expensive “toys”

Hollow hearts

Craving for affection

Finding none there,

Their spirits wither.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Find Me

 

 

If one day you look for me

and you can’t find me anymore,

look into the poems that I

wrote to you, you’ll find me there.

 

Close your eyes and feel me,

as I left a piece of my soul

in every letter, in every word.

 

Look for me in a Dandelion

In a rainy day

In a pristine white rose

In a cloudy sky

In our beautiful full moon

In a thunderstorm

In our favorite song

In a crimson red dress

 

Find me in your dreams

Feel me in your coldest night

 

I will look for you

In a lonely night

In the core of my soul

In a golden star

In our favorite song

In the sound of the rain

In every tear I shed,

one by one until

there is no more,

no more you, no more I,

no more us.

 

I will go quietly without

Interrupt your silence

 

If one day you remember me

and you can not find me

do not look for me anymore

this time I left to never return.

    I love the message via "Hollowness"; this is so sorely needed to be seen by many parents as it seems to be a widespread practice blatantly utilized worldwide. This cannot replace hugs and mindful conversation which is fundamentally necessary and so very priceless in any family unit. Well written indeed Blanca. As for the second stunning contribution, "Find Me", it is a very powerful, evocative poem that tears at heart's, touching souls with its achingly relatable lamentation of which we can feel each emotion that expresses love and separation so very deeply. A most captivating read.
