The shell I live in



Is a house I was born




Where the night is day




The forlorn are the people




That I see each day




Not there where I am




But in a place




Where my mind




Will allow them




To be




The house that I live in




Is the cold




The warm is the life I seek




And emptiness




Is the way I live

A house feels like a shell when there is no fun and laughter in it. To share it with other brings the house alive it feels good to go home. When it is an empty shell it is hard to go home alone to emptiness.

 

Moving write

The house that I live in


Is the cold


The warm is the life I seek


And emptiness


Is the way I live


Your heart speaks with such longing... Hugs ~ Scarlett
