Powerfully put with just a few words...I could hear the silence of those empty rooms.

Loneliness can be very loud at times. Within that loneliness can also be a strength to draw upon.

I enjoyed your haiku poem. You certainly express the feelings of being single.

The Amateur Poet said...

Very powerful haiku, and I did not miss the presence of the wall in your haiku.

Bill said...

This seems to be a haiku/twit kind of thing. As one's attention span decreases things just disappear.

No it is not a pear it is an apple.

Life is good,

A friend once told me:

"If you're sad, don't be
If you're tired, lean on me."

It's a horrible feeling, isn't it?

And yet I get the sense, past all the power you loaded those words with, that you felt like you're something new now, and something better.

Keep feeling that way. You go, girl!
