Letting Go

I fall slow,
Hollow,
Like a felled tree.

There’s no careful
Way to say
I wish you’d held me.

    Short but not so sweet. =[)

    I’ve felt this before. “Hollow” is not a good feeling. Empty with nothing else to give.

    The “careful” makes me think the person to be timid worried of the others reaction.

    Good choice of words.

    hollow is not the best feeling, better than suicidal, but still an uncomfortable place to be. agreed with abran.

    Aww. The two worst feelings are hollowness and numbness.
