Writer’s Digest Wednesday Poetry Prompt – 353 – Nothing

4 Comments

For today’s prompt, write a nothing important poem. Maybe it’s a poem about an unimportant tool, plant, animal, or even person. Of course, sometimes the unimportant things are revealed to be the most important of all. So leave no unimportant stone unturned in search of your poem.

Nothing …

I tried repeatedly to tell you how I felt

I needed you to understand what was

happening in my life

What I was going through

And …

Why I was not myself

 

As usual

You were only concerned with

yourself and what you thought

was important in your life and

continually ignored my pain

My need to talk to you

My need to tell you everything

in hopes you would understand

went unnoticed

brushed off as unimportant

 

Your actions and your words

made me feel even more

like what I was experiencing

was …

Nothing Important …

… and Then There Was None – Day 24 April PAD

… and Then There Was None

 

Oh… the absolute

horror as we watched

the event of 9/11

unfold before our

eyes on TV

 

Who could have

done this horrible

thing…

the senseless act…

the unimaginable…

 

As we watched the

towers attacked…

the planes flying

into them with

callous disregard

of life on land

and in the air

 

There were more

questions than

answers that day

…as there are

even to this day

 

We had been

attacked

Our trust breached

Innocents lost

And…

Before the day

was over where

the Twin Towers

stood was…

NOTHING…

nothing but death

and devastation

and tremendous

loss…

Loss of life…

Loss of security…

Loss of trust…

 

And then…

There was NONE…

Today’s prompt was to write a moment poem … 9/11 was a moment I can never forget …

Out of Love…

Out of Love…

I used to wear

my heart on

my sleeve…

No more and

Never again

 

I am out of love

Nothing left to give

My heart is only a

Muscle dissolving…

Nothing

Nothing

Can a broken

heart continue

to be broken?

 

Can the shattered

pieces turn to dust?

 

Lost…

Numb…

Why?

 

The emptiness

becomes deeper…

Stronger…

 

Leaving her feeling

Nothing …

Surprise!

Hopes…
Dreams…
Promises…
All dashed
and broken
Lost…
 
I can no longer
Believe in anything
Can no longer
think anything 
good…
positive…
will happen 
in my life
 
I continually 
expect the
worst…
negative…
 
And…
 
Should something
positive happen
I am completely
Surprised!

The Nothing

The Nothing

In life…
there is nothing
 
But…
 
There is nothing
that only exists
in our minds
 
And…
 
The nothing that is…
The nothing that 
is always there…
Hiding in the shadows…
Creeping around corners…
Dissolving into dark recesses…
 
We know that nothing
well because to us
it is real…
it is there…
it is pain…

This was inspired by a quote from The Snow Man by Wallace Stevens:
“Nothing that is not there and the nothing that is.”

NOTHING…

Nothing…
What I get
from You
 
You…
 
Who tells me
you care for me
 
Yet…
 
Give me nothing
of yourself
Except empty
words and
Excuses…
 
So…
 
Starting now
 
You…
 
will receive
Nothing in
Return…

Dark Corner…

Such pain…
Mind…
Body…
Spirit…
Soul..
Heart Shattered…
 
Too many pieces
this time
Shattered…
Not Broken
 
Nothing left
to pick up
Nothing left
to mend
 
Just a dark
corner to call
home where all the
Demons Live…

Worthless…

Worthless…

I refuse to be sucked
into your sad and
troubling state
of mind
 
Tear me down…
Meaningless coming
from the likes of you
 
Tear down my friends…
The same friends you
suck up to daily
 
But…
 
Will stab in the back
at the drop of a hat in
order to push your
own agenda of
hate…
racism…
bigotry…
 
You are NOTHING
A NOBODY
A WORTHLESS
piece of humanity
 
Now …
with that said …
You have been 
eliminated from 
my existence

No Words

No Words

Silence…
 
Again…
 
Why am I not
Surprised?
 
The lack of words
…noiseless words
speaks more than
anything voiced
 
Leaving me confused
yet again…
And…
suffering through
your silence
between words
