’twas like nightmares
trying to scream
and nothing comes out
no matter how hard
’twas like drowning
and you can’t
’twas like missing a step
your foot is suspended
in air, you know
it should felt
have no idea
if you ever feel solid ground again
or you’ll just fall forever
longing just to be near you feels like that
(my soul is an empty road without you)
This week’s World of Words prompt, “kahidlaw”, a Bisaya word which means “deep longing”.
Every week, Rosemarie (of A Reading Writer), Maria (of Doodle Scribbles), and Jade will post a word from a different country. world.https://jademwong.wordpress.com/2020/03/23/poetry-reunion/
The current virus scare has left most of us locked down at home. But sadly, it has also left some families apart too.
Most of us if not all miss home; but most of those at home miss the world outside.
Sending more love guys 💗💗💗
