I Am Nothing

Heartbreak doesn’t begin to describe the infliction of pain.

Meant for nothing no matter how much hope there is.

After all, lessons not learned as the past repeats all knowing blood trumps tasteless water.

Against my will the fight for survival begins, that’s all I have left.

Better to shut all out than to feel this agony another second.

Breathing once again pains as air turns into acid.

Not cared for by those given everything, means nothing.

And I am nothing.

  1. Sigh…I don’t know you, but I do know your heartbreak and pain. I can assure you that you are someone important. It is not better to shut people out though. Relationships can shatter our hearts. I have never felt so fragile, vulnerable, and devastated. My ex and I were together for 10 years and married for 9 years. He told me he was leaving me via text message. Later I found out he had been cheating on me for the past 2 years. It is only in the context of relationship that healing can occur. Humans by their very nature are relational beings. My friends and family have made my pain bearable. I need them to survive my hell. You matter. I matter. I don’t know what happened to you. I am sorry you are hurting. Sometimes life is a real bummer.


    1. Thank you so very much for your heart felt comment. I do appreciate the concern however, the poem was based from a prompt, “what you fear most.”
      I am so very sorry that I implied life has got me down. I also apologize for the pain that’s causing you heartache. I’ve been there myself after being married for 17 years, divorced from him 6 years ago.
      Please by all means, contact me anytime you need moral support or just a friendly ear.
      I hope it’s safe to assume I may do the same with you.


  2. Ha! You executed the assignment perfectly. Great job 🙂 Please don’t appologize. Though I do feel a bit jaded, it is significant to note that I still feel. It is a bummer that we share divorce in common though. Glad to know your ok. Please contact me anytime. Kind Regards.
