“Where you used to be, there is a hole in the world, which I find myself constantly walking around in the daytime, and falling in at night. I miss you like hell.” ~ Edna St. Vincent Millay

Oh, that quote has to be one of the saddest ever. 😦 Love the butterfly pics., Gemma.
It spoke to me.
Great quote. The butterfly is so pretty, but the words are so sad. I guess when the theme is loneliness, it has to be sad. 😦
I’ve been thinking this one over. I think it’s a feeling – loneliness. It’s its own feeling. Not happy or sad. Missing someone can just be that – noticing and feeling their absence. And loneliness is bad only when you can’t enjoy your own company. It’s nice just to feel. If you miss and notice a loneliness, then you know you love someone, and that’s another feeling. It could be good. It could hurt. But it’s – ah – nice just to feel. Am I making any sense? I know what I’m trying to say. 🙂
O Missy u r always on my mind & I find myself looking sooooooo forward 2 seeing u. U r everything right in my life 😘😘😫
What a poignant post!
I got a little emotional. ;-). Thanks for the visit, becca. Appreciate it.
Beautiful words and a perfectly captivating images of the butterfly. It somehow reminds of how we are as humans. People see the exterior and assumes a person happy, and all is alright just because that person can laugh or smile or appears to be great. This post reminds us to extend ourselves and make others know they are not alone. Thsnks
Nicely put, IT. Thanks for the insight. Spread a little kindness. 😉
well put and the photos of the butterfly are awesome
Wonderful wonderful wonderful!!!
It is own sentiment, not something you can or want to control…
Love, love how you express it with the change of butterfly.
I’m glad you noticed. Thanks, Amy. 🙂
As heart-wrenching as the quote is, it moves me a lot. And with the beautiful photos of learning to spread wings it tells me even much more vivid story. Of learning to be…
Thank you, Ese. I’m glad it had that effect on you. 🙂
Gobsmacked, Gem! You nailed this one 😦
