SoCS — Hollowed Out

I thought we completed each other.
I thought we made each other whole.
I thought we two were one.

4B394077-F0D7-4CF3-B9A2-7C2EECBD9A9EBut then you plunged that dagger deep into my heart.
You doused my light.
You ripped out my soul.
You soured my spirit.

I am now an empty, hollow shell of the man I once was.

The man who only wanted to fill your soul with hope.

But who now only wants to fill your hole with soap.


Written for today’s Stream of Consciousness Saturday prompt from Linda G. Hill. We are to use “empty” and/or “hollow” in our posts.

    A young boy got a single line part in the school play, where he was to say, “Oh fair maiden, I have come to snatch a kiss and fill your soul with hope.” The nervous boy practiced his lines every day and when he got on stage the day of the play he said, “Oh fair maiden, I have come to kiss your snatch and fill your hole with soap.”
