Nothing (Free verse) by greym0on
I wonder what I am to you.
I'm sure your response would be
You could be lying to hide some small
token of caring -
But I doubt it.
Marble statues envy
Your cold indifference to me...
And I gave up everything I struggled to gain
To start over with
In hopes that maybe you
Would come around
And we could start weaving miracles
From these dreams I keep
to hide the fact that I have
That I am
And your are
nothing short of impossible.
I would ask you what my love is to you
if I didn't already know the answer -
Which is the same as everything else -
A single word that burns in my mind
And eats at me -
Persistent as time itself.
So I work everyday
For somewhere around
At least -
Not enough to leave you
to your miserable soltitude.
While you are stuck living
with my presence -
I could count the hours we spend
Having the same conversations
Over and Over again
And you could tell me every little thing
I'm doing wrong -
So I can lie awake at night
And wonder why I fight for you -
Why I'd die for you -
When my worth in your eyes can be blown away
by one of your frustrated sighs
at my ineptitude.
And you could ask me what would make me stop
As far as I can tell -
It wouldn't be anything short
