Gladness - An emotion I never knew #ollie1stcomp #SomethingUnique

FREE WRITING

9
My sadness is a hollowness.
I can't tell you what's worse.
Its like drowning in a sea,
Or an unforgiving curse. 

Sometimes my hollowness is a shell,
holding in a thousand oceans of tears.
Sometimes though, it holds a thousand pieces of glass, 
Wedged in between my soul and each of my body’s hairs.

That's the pain.
I don't want to get up. 
I don't want to move at all. 
Unable to even reach for my coffee cup. 

Sometimes though,
like when I had my first kiss,
I had kept my eyes open so all I could see were his freckles.
Each one told a story, I didn't want to miss.

But when my cat died,
I didn't cry.
I just stood there.
Unable to open my eye.

 That's the scariest thing.

Sometimes I am somebody,
somebody in pain and sadness. 
But sometimes I nobody,
Never knowing the existence of gladness.
                                           and I don't seem to exist at all...

 
Full Disclosure ***
I have never had my first kiss or any kind of pet so these are not personal experiences. The emotions I can relate to though!

    I love how you put examples in here of how this girl might react so that you show her emotions (or lack of emotions) in the piece.

    This is so beautiful, honestly.

    Thanks for entering my competition! This certainly fits the prompt 6 as this poem represents one of the greatest emotions - sadness. Prompt 6 required true and raw emotions and you delivered them wonderfully!

    Also, if possible, try and enter other prompts too. I guarantee that all of them are unique in one way or another!

    Replying: Awwh thanks for your kind comments!!

    The memory is partially true for a matter that I thought I could fix but realised it was out of my reach if the other person (whom I was very close to) did not care for what they were doing. Still makes me feel like I could be doing something but thankfully I have come to that conclusion (painful but the honest truth)

    Have a nice day :)
