All I Have Is Nothing - Poem by Erika Conti

It s going on since forever
the man who makes me cry
doesn't seem to change
nor him or this sad situation
it feels like i m alone and worthless
but i know i m sweet
and i let this poison out
all by myself
it s so easy to write about despair
words come out
with these tears
i m so used to them they ve
become my best friends
but they can't help me and
nobody can maybe except from death _ death
visits me every day with disillusionment killing my dearest dreams
all i have is nothing and
i hold on strong to it.
virtual kisses they re a relief that fades away when i look into my life
a tender love
whispers my name
through the trees moved by the wind.
this is all about my frail hopes
my hopes are half broken but they re still here with me so betrayed.
Paper bathed in salted drops_ *

    You're drowning your paper. Careful! you might be drowning other emotions and characterists. Hope could be in the pool too.
