“to want and not to have, sent all up her body a hardness, a hollowness, a strain
and then to want and not to have- to want and want- how that wrung the heart, and wrung it again and again!”

Oh Andy what a glorious photo! It’s so old-world-ly and full of melancholy. And your poem is perfect, she died inside….
Thank you, I was a at a loss what to post, and then with a little help from friends I wrote this, really want to try writing more…
The woman in the photo certainly looked that way, thank you for dropping by!
Oh gosh that twisted me inside with sadness. It’s so thought provoking and I adore the photo. One could writ so many stories from this pic…perfect x
forlorn…..and perfect lines to go with it !! ❤
Thank you Andy! Why do so many people look so sad when waiting for a bus?
I am one of them. Usually my thoughts are sombre and far away.
I’m sorry to hear that, I hope your thoughts are not always so sombre…
naaah………not always 😛 usually seldom 😉
Good to hear!
