The Hollow – a poem

The Hollow

She wears a smile on a face

But in her heart she cries

The sun may shine outside

But not within her mind

She appears normal, average

Stable, well-adjusted, capable

But inside she feels like she is falling

Falling into a black abyss

She suffers in solitude

Even when she is in the middle of a crowd

She is completely isolated

She is lonely to the core of her soul

And all she can do is wait

Wait for the sun to come out

For it shine upon her face

And warm her heart

Wait for the hollow in her heart to close

Wait to feel alive again

In her heart of hearts

She knows all hope is not lost

Sometimes we need to weather the rain

Because it’s often after the worst storms

That we see the most beautiful rainbow
