Hollow. A word I’ve tried to define so many times, but could not find the answer. You think hollow means blankness and emptiness. If what you are saying is true, then how come this hollow point bullet that I have fired from my Glock pistol has painted such beauty over my son's face??

Oh it's raining.

It was raining for some time, but somehow, now I began to hear the sound of thunder. I can feel water drops touching down my flabby skin, and mixing with what appears to be blood.

Is it mine or his? I guess it doesn't matter right now.

Does being hollow refer to the void inside? Then why do I feel this boil inside my chest as if my heart is being gouged out with a scorched hand? Or do you think my dream was hollow?  Then how come it drove me so far as to kill my own son??Then how come it drove me down all the way to killing my own son?

The demon is finally out of his cage. Grinding his teeth, and drooling with excitement. This is the moment he was longing for from the day I swore that oath.

When was that? How did it all begin? When was the last time I saw her smile?

"Oh, it's you!" She is right in front of me.

"My beloved saint! Do you have the answer?"
