March 16, 2015 absence finds me in absence finds me in the likeliest of places – in the shower this morning, when i flip the soap over so that the lettering is on top, there will be no one to flip it back . 20150316:1008 y AdvertisementShare this:Click to email a link to a friend (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Tumblr (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pinterest (Opens in new window)Like this:Like Loading...
This is so poignant and beautifully written. Do you speak for the lonely or for yourself? This definitely speaks of a heart laid bare, in which is usually found the most beautiful of writing. If this is you, I hope you are healing.
Absence or abstinence? Well written and you feminine powers draw me in, but I need a bit of clarification please. ;
thank you both for your thoughts and kind words.
I hope that, in the midst of what sounds like loneliness, you are able to find freedom, power, and solace. Whatever thoughts and feelings evoked this poem, it is poignant and potent. Be blessed.
thank you for your blessings!
thank you so much – glad you liked it!
It’s impossible t
To be lonely with the Internet.
although studies are showing that the internet could make people feel lonelier, more isolated… http://www.theatlantic.com/magazine/archive/2012/05/is-facebook-making-us-lonely/308930/

I love your use of the shower. It truly is an intimate space shared only by yourself and a chosen partner.
quite true! thank you!
I love this, because it shows how, when you lose someone or someone leaves you, its hard to grasp until something so little, so simple as being the only one to now use your shower, makes you realize that you are now alone. This is beautiful.
that’s a lovely way to put it! thank you!

There can be an elegance in being alone as you’ve so beautifully described.
thank you, Carolin!
Beautiful. Simply beautiful. Such depth – of longing, touching on the wistful, hinting at despair perhaps? Immensely touching and very well written.
thank you, Charles!

i appreciate your visit!
Love the symbolism demonstrated by flipping the lettering. Even the shower becomes mundane in the absence of our own self and that of another. Loved it.
thank you so much for your thoughts!

poignancy at its peak. great work.
awww, super sweet of you!
Lovely and deeply touching
thank you, Himali!
There can be little elegance in loneliness too! You have said that so beautifully with the help of poem. Beautiful
thank you, Stars Of Life!
thank you for your visit and compliment!
So random and simple, and yet so profound. Love it.
glad you think so – thank you!
So beautifully written and it flows so easily, too! :3
thank you – i’m glad it works!
Simple and sweet! It’s takes that to be a winner.
thank you, Alka!
Only recently I started checking Freshly Pressed posts. I realize that even if I write with all my heart, I’ll never be on Freshly Pressed. But it doesn’t matter to me. With only around 200 followers, most of my posts are well liked. Only this matters. That’s like being my own ‘Happiness Engineer’
hmm… everyone once had only around 200 followers. the only path is up! (smile)
Well I think u are pretty lucky to have them…hu…mere to ab Bhi zero hai but I still hope for my best for me and my self poems and thoughts…left on fate but I won’t loose myself

This here is a demonstration of brief yet very powerful use of word for expression. The use of the shower (a space shared by only yourself – symbol of loneliness) and the soap (the small object triggering lone thoughts) is truly remarkable, beautiful!
thank you for the shout-out and kind words!
To be lonely with the Internet.
plg like me and follow
I think its the way you explain such a small detail in your every day life, that truly reflects what its like to be lonely. Loneliness isn’t made up of big imposing situations, instead it is all the little things combined. Beautiful 🙂
thank you for your compliment and thoughts!
how so deep

Beautiful, y. 😎
thank you so much, Kreng Jai!
I like the use of lowercase. It helps personify the passiveness.
glad that it works, Jocelyn! thank you for dropping by.
Hi Yi-ching! I love this poem. I help run a collection on Medium.com called Human Parts (http://medium.com/human-parts) and I’d love to share it with our readers. Would you be interested in that? If so, email me (email@example.com) and let me know! I’d just need a short bio and I’d link back to your blog.
what a cool idea. feel free to repost and link me! thank you!
aww.. so sweet!
but also, they way you put or place things (like the soap) will stay they way you want them to be, with no one else to change what YOU like about your environment. It’s the realization that you are the instigator of change in your life, and are totally in charge.
that’s another perspective! thank you for sharing!
thank you for visiting. please feel free to subscribe for daily doses!
you have to invite someone
to flip the soap,
and maybe they will set it on it’s side
and wait for you
to flip to the other side.
ha! love it!
Beautifully written, and wonderfully poignant.
thank you, Nicholas, for the kind thoughts!

I am all too familiar with the absence you speak of. Beautifully written. Thank you.
thank you, and i hope things get easier.
I wish the same for you.
I cannot describe how this post made me feel. I felt connected, yet I felt how my loneliness also reverberates around me. I love how instead of writing something long and rambley, you were straight to the point. You said exactly how you feel in a puzzling way that makes so much sense. I just love it. I hope your loneliness is satisfied soon.
i like that: “in a puzzling way…” that sounds interesting. thank you.
You should check out my latest post. We might have some things in common.
Beautifully written. And touching https://roman853.wordpress.com
thank you, Roman!
Well expressed. Nice to see you on freshly pressed, y. It’s been a while since I’ve flipped through your little poetic doses (: And this one is a fave I’ll remember– especially the next few times I use a bar of soap! (:
ha! thank you, Lila!

It’s sad but I know the feeling. What I do is try and make jokes about it. I know someday it will change
thank you, Sabina!
That this was Freshly Pressed is an embarassment. There is more poetry written on the bar of soap than in this tripe.
thank you, K.A.!
Beautiful. Well written!!

Words were few but narrated a huge story full of various emotions.. beautifully written, left an impact on me & left me thinking..
i’m glad that it worked! thank you!
I understand your feelings of loneliness.. I onced drawed myself to the exact same situation, crying and mourning seem endless. But you will get back on track, stronger than ever 🙂 best regards -Pearlie- (your Pink Pearl cube one is so lovely.)

“absence finds me” is one of the most effective short poems written, rich in space and conveying the immediacy and fullness of absence.
