Empty Words

A quiet soul 
longing for 
in this loud and
disconnected world 

The isolation is


A physical 

My desolation echoes 
off empty walls
down empty halls

The words 
empty today

  2. This is such a powerful commentary on how isolated and alone many of us are feeling during this pandemic. Yet, though we may be physically separated, friendships, love, kindness and more still link us. You are not alone, dear Penny. Nor am I.
