A Void

Where did everybody go?

I’m living in a void

Safe to say this is my home


Back and forth in empty space

Pacing an invisible floor

No walls define this place


Echoes singing back to me

Echoes singing

Back to me, back to me


Airwaves flooding with misery

But it’s comforting

To have some company


Projections in the vast

Deliver memories

My future meets my past


Surrounded by pictures

Of faces I knew

Dreamers, wishers, hunters, fishers


And just like that

I’m in a void

I’m back



    BRIAN HERE ~ Good afternoon FRIEND welcome to MPS ! It is an interactive site and operates by reading & commenting on each others Poems ! It sure has saved some of us from going MAD during LOCKDOWN. If you comment you should get replies & Members will comment on your Poems ~ OK !
    Angela & I married 2 weeks ago with just our Parents as witnesses ! So Im on lockdown in our First Home doing all the cooking - cleaning - gardening etc while ANGELA (who is a PHYSIO) is on the front line in the Local Hospital.

      Wow! That’s incredible. Congratulations to you both. And thank you Angela for all of the work are doing and will continue to do throughout this crisis! Catering science sounds so interesting. I love food and have been doing quite a bit of cooking myself.

      Anyway, I just wanted to say thank you for reading! I’ve never been on anything like this for poets and was a bit nervous to post. So I appreciate it, and I’m glad it resonated with you in some way. Enjoy your casserole! Sounds splendid!

        In your first verse you cracked it "this is my home" it is the place that we always return to, our homes are places where we can be ourselves and in these times it can be the best place to be as your words show.

        Welcome to MPS.

          Thank you for reading and commenting! Home can certainly be the best place. It can also be the worst place for some, unfortunately. I tried to portray that struggle a bit for those having a hard time with the quarantine while still embracing that indeed I am safe at home.

          I think you must speak for many in this piece. You cover the subject very well, and your heart supports your words. An edifying write. Joe

            Stay safe and well!

              We're walking in anew park now... It will either become familiar or we will soon see something we recognise and return home... Either way soon we will be home again.

              Excellent write thanks for the Fave's earlier I am flattered...

              I write to see thew world from different sides and ThisIsMyIdentity bravo on the name by the way... Keep writing

              • thisismyidentity


                You are so very welcome! I loved reading your work. I read them all. I couldn’t stop.

                I read to view the world in different perspectives. I write to share my own perception. Thank you for taking the time to read my writes and providing a new window to (so vividly) perceive part of life that is still unknown to me. Hat’s off to you my friend.

                • Andrew Charles Forrest

                  I agree with the reading vs writing
                  But things happen when you write you don't expect, I learn about myself
                  Or they do to me
                  Keep safe!
