Treasure Island

RoseAnn V. Shawiak

(October 6,1950 / New Jersey)

A Deep Emptiness


Tired of living a long life, filled with happiness, joy, suffering, sorrow.
Taking steps to meet it every day - even when not wanting to.
Pasting a smile on a face of grief, dancing with others, putting on a brave front for everyone around.
Deeply inside, fraught with an emptiness that just won't go away or ease up.
Life has taken on a new meaning, a loneliness with ever-increasing meanings in life, ones that can't quite be grasped as yet.
Listening to music tends to bring them close enough to hear, but I don't quite understand all the lyrics being sung, because they seem to be coming from another horizon, one I haven't been invited to as yet.
However, one I will be visiting soon, with a prayer upon my lips and the light of hope in my heart.
