Nothing



When your words are sharp and cutting,

it hurts my heart--

i feel like nothing


i fall down a long dark well;

if you ask, i'll only tell

you that "it's nothing"


(i feel like)

nothing.

Wow! This is very unlike all your other poems - short, crisp and to-the-point. And that pic. is a great one too!

This is sad and I feel bad for the little girl inside each of us that has ever felt this pain.

Riot Kitty said...

That IS sad. :(

Dear Shay this is so sad and painful. I relate to that little girl so much indeed...

Shadow said...

"i'm fine" and "it's nothing" are very abused phrases.....

Why do we treat each other so badly, so sadly?

I can relate... But the playful rhythm makes this poem uplifting despite its sadness.
I will not stay in that corner for long...
