Feeling Nothing

default ©

Published: April 2008



Nothing.
everyday I wake up feeling like my world is upside down
every island of my heart is being submerged into a deep abyss of unfamiliar waters
I have no oxygen and no one to help me.
I am left with nothing but my thoughts
nothing but my pain
and nothing but my sorrow
I have nothing
as I gasp for air
my lungs fill with the lonely waters of uncertainty
I beat my legs as hard as I can but never move an inch
I swing my arms as fast as I can but all I see is hope slipping through my fingertips
and just when I feel my heart turning cold
I look to god to save me
but he will never come
and I will never be happy
I struggle to stay alive
but  the darkness soon breaks me
and with nowhere left to turn
I let myself go
stranded somewhere between happiness and hopelessness
with nothing but my thoughts
nothing but my pain
and nothing but my sorrow
I am left with nothing
