Not Enough

The laughs, the smiles

The pain, the guilt

The faces, places

The loss, the fear

The love. Unloved

Life full, black void

Empty heart

Closed mind

Thrills and spills

Found and lost

So fast. Fleeting

Moments free

Not enough.

Without You.

This poem was inspired by one line from the film An Interview with a Vampire:

“Life has no meaning for you anymore, the wine has no taste, food sickens you and there seems no reason for any of it”

I felt that way for a very long time and some days I still do………..

        Thise moments are allowed, Lisa. I truly do feel for you, having lost your life partner. It is not what you expect to happen. And I can only imagine the deep void. Take care of yourself. I bet your horrible windy weather is not helping much at the moment, and being marooned in. Wish I was cliser. We could have a blast together! Xoxo

        Thanks Lorraine, that really means a lot.
        We do have really strong winds at the moment but at least the sun has come out today. I tried to go out yesterday but all the roads were flooded so I didn’t get very far!
        I wish you were too – we’d have so much fun :O) xxx

    Losing someone important to us can make everything useless. Not enough, is exactly right.
