Your absence is not an empty room.
it’s an all-filling feeling
of total devastation.
With you gone,
so is my ability to sleep.
You ripped my heart out
and made my lungs empty of air.
I watched myself fade,
when I sat in front of the mirror,
and I couldn’t decide,
if I’m just evaporating into thin air,
or are tiny particles of me
flying around the world,
looking for you.
You left,
and took away all my strength
that I possessed.
You left me with one thing only –
that longing feeling,
that made my chest tight,
eyes dry,
and my life empty.
I miss you,

– Chatty Owl –

  1. …. wow! Powerful. Painful. Vulnerability at its finest. It is easy to relate to this piece. Luckily those days are over for me. Love, Light, and Laughter – N

    1. Im glad you could relate. Not because i would like to evoke sadness in you, but because even a sad experience/emotion is worth to be felt.

  2. Oh darling has this happened to you?? Your words are so painful, raw and so realistic – if you are going through this hugs from across the seas to you. I am glad to see you return but I hope that these are just words… xx

    1. Realistic, yes. And yes, it was an emotion that i was feeling when i wrote this. I hardly ever miss people in my life, but certain souls really leave an imprint for me x

  3. Whoever inspired this rawness certainly got through the layers to the real you huh? Stay vulnerable Miss Owl, it’s a beautiful quality. X

    1. I dont know if being vulnerable is what im comfortable with. It putts the heart at risk and sleep to disappear. But thank you for always having such beautiful words to tell me.

  4. To be missed in this way says more than any words ever could about how much you mean to the person mourning your absence! Such a beautiful expression of raw emotion my dear, your talent is honestly unmatched! ❤️
