“Lonely Hollow”

My heart is swiftly faltering,

As I ingress into digression,

This stomach’s caustically churning,

While I fall into a solitary dimension.

Lurking shadows envelop my being,

The cold encroaches, bitterness follows,

In need of help, I’m begging, pleading,

Will someone please save me, from Lonely Hollow?!



This not a cry for help for me personally, as these are not my current feelings or thoughts (thank goodness), but I have been there many times throughout my life.

This is a dedication piece to all those people wrestling with dark emotions, who are spiralling, withdrawing from everything, feeling depressed and alone.

Did you know, the suicide rate more than doubles at this time of year… this is not acceptable! We all need to do more to address and prevent this!

To those of you able to connect with others and be there for them in their time of need, be alert, look for the signs, take the time (even if it’s only a matter of minutes) to listen, be supportive, uplifting, and loving. It can make a total difference to someone’s life!

To those struggling… you are not alone, you do matter. There are people out here, who can help you see the beauty within yourself that you are blind to, people who can show you the healing nature of love. All you have to do is hold on, keep your hope alive (even a tiny bit), and reach out to us. We are ready to show you some love!

Love and Respect always,

Following Whispers.

Author: Following Whispers

Hello, I'm Following Whispers, an English poet and author who has been writing for around two decades. I'm a self-professed geek who can get deep sometimes, but I personally don't take myself too seriously, I just love to have fun, plus inspire myself and others. In my early twenties, I realised that beauty can be born out of not only love, but also pain and other motivations. The more I used writing poetry to make sense of my busy mind, the more it helped me to find a silver lining in even the darkest emotions, experiences, observations and topics; find positivity even in the face of extreme negativity; find strength when I was being forced to feel weak; and find hope that my tomorrows would be brighter. I began publishing my writing in 2018 and currently have two books available Worldwide, including my most recent release "Confront The Shadows". I have bared my soul in each and every one of my poems, and I'm confident that you'll get just as much from reading them and relating them, as I did from writing them. Please feel free to look around my site and read the free poems I've shared here, after which, why not grab a book of mine, drop by Instagram, connect with me and say hello!
