Hollow Heart
M Q Walters

My father died
I sought comfort in any place
Even with him…
My Grandfather
His father…
Who could not shed a tear
For me…
Who could not look at me
Who stared away…
It seemed with no heart
Who shed tears for others to see
But never even looked at me…
An old mans tears…
Cried while never seeing me…
I stood alone…
Needing the touch
Or to know I was not alone…
Instead he never even looked at me
But he shed tears for others to see…
But he never even looked at me.

"another one, it's some wonder you're not locked away somewhere. just one thought, and it's probably just wishful thinking, perhaps he was of the generation that found it hard to say i love you to those close to them. " -- curious.
"I liked this Matti I think you have touched a subject that is very common being a type of person that isn't affectionate it's hard to explain why .sometimes it's just the way we are .have a great christmas " -- fh, canada.
"Thanks curious and fh ...should never be hard to say I love you to a child...to hug them, to offer up a smile, to look at them atleast? It was a devastating time in my life, I sought comfort in anything, and found it rare indeed. My grandfather has long since passed on...sometimes I wonder what excuse he offered to my father but mostly I am aware that I have not forgiven him. He wouldn't even look at me. " -- mattie.
"i apologize for my insensitivity, it's hard to get my mind around something which must have been so difficult. no more advice but to keep writing." -- curious.
