Simply 6 Minutes: 21st June

Christine at Stine Writing is our hostess for this fabulous photoprompt challenge.
I have no heart.
It was stolen from me
Leaving me empty inside,
And I am
But a shell of what I was.
I can reflect others,
Imitate their illusion,
Pretend to be what they see,
But no-one sees me.
My inner light has gone,
I am hollow,
An empty glass
Always borrowing
Someone else’s life.


About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

  1. Nope, Not Pam says:

    Sounds a bit like identity theft 😳

  2. Very moving and often how we as women feel, at the loss of love. Well done but tragic. 💔

  3. Sadje says:

    Very poignant

  4. Sad but perfect for the prompt! I would imagine that so many people feel this way, unfortunately!

  5. murisopsis says:

    So sad. She is literally gutted!

  6. Bridgette says:

    Powerfully sad. I believe I’ve felt this from time to time.
