Sadness you call to me again,
An old friend phoning home.
While it hurts my throat,
I still choke on hello
To greet you,
To feel something
Saying “empathy”
In your luring tone,
In the way you say,
“I miss you.”

    1. I enjoy hearing readers thoughts 😊 The inspiration came from feeling familiar feelings of sadness that has been felt before. When we feel alone it is easy to want to feel the familiar, trying to find a connection with anyone or anything. Even though it is obvious where these feelings will take us, sometimes it’s still so tempting to allow it to swallow us.
