A silence so heavy and hollow
It can wrap it’s fingers around your heart
Reaching through the inner shouts
And tormented voices
A silence so thick and empty
It can wrap itself around your mind
Reaching through to highlight the doubts
And question all your choices
The difference between lonely and alone
Is that silence you feel when all voices are gone
It’s that intrinsic belief you will always be one
The isolation is in your bones, as this heart-gripping silence becomes your home

  1. Such a soul-rending piece…
    I could feel that silence you spoke of as I read, and it takes powerful writing to actually make the reader experience the emotion the writer wrote with.
    And that’s exactly what this piece was… powerful. Each and every word held so much meaning and strung together, it was devastating in the best way.

    Looking forward to reading more from you, Josie! ❤
