A room that echoes

Andrew Charles Forrest

A room that echoes


A hand outstretched

Asks to be touched

When empty eyes

Have no more tears

A soul that's scared

Has an empty heart

A room that echoes

Is an empty home

    A fine write Andrew.
    There's a saying, something like: 'Empty vessels make the most noise when tapped (or banged)'. Not that I go round hitting 'empty' folk! lol.

    A melancholy write - love the simple format which underlines it so well.

  • dusk arising

    Sadness as if one were reaching for the last ever human touch, a speechless goodbye, grateful for that final comfort as one soul traverses the untold truth to beyond.

    I was captivated within your words.

    Wonderful emotive words Andrew and in my case the last two lines are so true.
