eggshell thin fragile
touch me and I will shatter
empty, blank inside

    I think many with even hints of depression can feel like that empty egg… I remember when I was a teen and thought no one would listen. I guess that is when I also started listening to and hearing myself… one way to grow. There are many ways to grow. True friends are helpful. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    It is amazing that folks who are from the net can embrace and support each other with their words. Continues success on all your books. One of these days I might get my own act together and publish some of my collections.

  2. painful yet perfectly captured Freya.

    stay well!
