Nothing Left

By cre

praying now
and I'm breaking down in dreams
and these things I don't believe
something like your heaven
and something I can't be
laced with lack of feeling
I know there's nothing left of me

and it's nothing I couldn't sleep away
nothing that won't fade
nothing I haven't lived before
but I'm afraid . .
there's nothing left to get me through today

I'm losing now
the way memories crease the night
and this listlessness of life
I can feel I'm drifting
and I try, I try
but I can't help but know
that this time
there's nothing left to turn out right

and it's nothing I couldn't sleep away
there's nothing that won't fade
I've died inside this dream before
but the ending's changed
and I know there's nothing left to get me through today

and for just a little while
I was inside the hope of knowing
your heaven and all that I could be
but then we said goodbye to dreams
and now I see there's nothing left of me

and it's nothing I can't sleep away
I'm nothing that won't fade
and I know there's nothing left
there's nothing left to get me through today

    hi, I'm new here and I just love this work. I loved the refrain, and I read this as almost a lullaby. I can certainly feel the emotion!

    So sad and emotive, I felt I could relate to the third stanza. For some reason I felt a strange lulling sense of comfort as I read this, I don't know why. An exquisitely graceful piece, I loved it. -L

    always crushing in a beautifully blue sort of way... i don't know i think your poetry is a suicidal snowflake.

    Sleeping, what an addictive substatute for chemical intervention of depression. One main theme, and then three sub's just as permeable. This touched so close to home for me, and it's hard not to grow a bit numb and forget when your tredding so long and so

    so hard. I have noticed how divergent your poetry is anymore in the way of style and content. It's always wonderful to see you've got a new one up because I never know what I'll see or feel with it. Beutiful. ~JMDW~

    Oh, and when I say divergent, I mean you've expanded your wings when it comes to expression of thoughts and feelings....it's like a rainbow with endless colors, all appealing and all different:)

    oh wow, i dont think I could have described today any better, myself. Very interesting when poems can explain what was once thought unexplainable... thank you. ~gothic~

  • A former member wrote: For me the last two stanzas were by far the most powerful. Just reading them aloud, slowly...letting them sink in. "I'm nothing that won't fade." Delicious. -SP

    Such a sad write that seems all to familiar. The feelings of pain just jump right out of this poem. Like always, this is a very beautiful and extremely well written poem.

  • A former member wrote: The pain that is laced throughout your words is chilling...to say the least. The feeling of nothing is a cold and devoid feeling...This is a clear look at someone at the end of their rapidly fraying rope.
