When you left, I dug a hole. Digging deep into the layers of
my emptiness. I lost my value, loss my love, loss my
strength, loss my clarity, and all of my essence.
The deeper I dug the more I realized I allowed you to fill
my holes. Unconsciously I did not see that part of you
makes me feel my value as separate from me; I see it as
part of you filling my holes with hope and destiny.
I felt “we fit each other” feeling fully complete, a unified
whole, one that could sustain the dissatisfaction of us being
incomplete. I filled you, and you filled me, together
creating our own sustainability.
And now my holes are caving and shaking with fear
knowing you are no longer here. I feel the emptiness and I
take stride, the memory of what was lost, and knowing my
essence will start to rise.
Through it all I have learned…. It is not in the filling of my
holes, but in the “feeling” of understanding the power that
creates the holes that fills me up with the essence of loving
the life I live once again, allowing the holes to subside
never to feel separate from self again.

About the Author
Ms. Raja Williams, also known as Raja’s Insight, fiercely arrived on the writer’s scene in 2012 after being awakened by a prolific poet, lyricist, songwriter, and music producer whom encouraged her to write daily. After nearly twenty years of pent up words only floating in her own head she began to allow the words to spill out onto empty pages and find way to readers needing encouraging words.
