#JusJoJan prompt the 14th – “Neighbor”

A city wide, Teeming with souls, But a void in heart, Living in tiny holes, Cramped in thought, Suppressed in emotions, Arid in love, A mindless vacuum.

The Friday Reminder and Prompt for #SoCS March 21/2020

"Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “welcome.” Use it any way you’d like." I have written a Shadorma on our life nowadays.
