Isn't it funny how our inner world can sometimes be richer and fuller than our outside world could ever be? Maybe especially so for creative people, who have so much to bring into reality of what was first just an inner richness:)
Just love the first stanza. How many times have we looked at empty seats that were once used by a loved one, a space at the table, the favourite chair unoccupied. You have written a very powerful piece here that is stacked with emotion. So many good lines that resonate with your reader.
This piece had me thinking which I like and was one of the first I thought of after reading all entries. 4 points
