You're Not Here

You’re Not Here
(March 22, 2010)

I can hear
My own cries
Bouncing off the
Dark walls of
Where I am
Somewhere there where
You are not

  1. This is a sad poem that touches the heart.

  2. I can't remember when I last hurt that way, but it has been a long time, so thank god for that! Wish that I was reading this poem then, it would help express some of the hurt eh? Smiles.

  3. Have you been hurt at some time in your life little angel, if so I hope the pain has all gone and the words you are writing are only from memory.

  4. oh! it is so sad. i read it will never know happiness until you have truly love. you'll never know what pain really is until you lost it( something to that effect)...and i guess it is true.i don't know if its relevant to your poem but its how i can only describe the feeling reaching out on me reading this powerful and heartfelt piece.


  5. Made me read more than twice. A brilliant play of words. Chapeau !

    Please have a wonderful Tuesday.

  6. Sounds so very lonely. I hope these days you are feeling nothing but love and happiness sweet Bells!

  7. this is sad... I'll go read your happy ones to destress. :)

  8. Hey, Charity,

  9. Hi Charity,

    Brian M.~ Thank you for your visit and for your comment, Brian M. , I find it rather.... mysterious... how there is a "bar" on "chapel hill" called "he's not here" ...hmmm....

  13. Beautiful as always. Heart wrenching too. I don't think you can love and not have that happen at least once in your life.

    It seems almost wrong to change the subject. I finally got to passing on the Happy 101 Award today that you gave me. And as a thank you for all you've done for me lately, I passed it back to you. LOL You don't need to do anything with it. It's just a thank you in appreciation for your kindness.

  14. Hi Charity,

    I must have missed the post you wrote to me, where you said you were having a drought there. So sorry and sounds really bad for the poor old cows and animals.
    We have not had rain for about 4 months and it is pretty dry here too. So bad, that we have had to buy 4 tanker loads of water to fill our tank, this Summer. We will both have to do a rain dance.


  15. Thank you so much, Mary Anne! You are so special to me!!!!!!! :) And thank you also, for your insight on my writing here!!!!!! :)

  16. Carolyn~ Yes, let us now join hands and do our very own special raindance!!!!!! :D :D Oh wouldn't it be just lovely????? I am so sure that the stars would all fall down!!!!!! :D :D :D Just for us!

  17. Hiya! I know this is kinda off topic however , I'd figured I'd ask.
    Would you be interested in trading links or maybe guest writing a blog article or vice-versa?
    My website addresses a lot of the same topics
    as yours and I think we could greatly benefit from each other.
    If you are interested feel free to shoot me an e-mail. I look forward to hearing from you!

    Terrific blog by the way!

  18. I was suggested this web site by my cousin. I am not sure whether this post is written by him as no one
    else know such detailed about my trouble. You are
    incredible! Thanks!
