One With Nothing

I know what the future holds.
No warm embraces for this weary heart.
The shades of night breathe welcome to the day.
The memories flicker, with the firelight.
The sadness fades.
The blackness hides within.
I am one with nothing, once again.
But pain is free,
And I'll take any bargain, so it seems.
I'm wondering something in me hasn't changed,
I cannot weep.
I've had the anger.
My eyes have swollen from the sadness.
I've wandered long and lonely streets, in darkness.
I've torn the paper.
I've turned to stone and back,
And shaken.
I've had the breaking.
My life has torn assunder.
I've had the aching.
Even the future
Holds itself away from me.
At last
I am possession free.

Thank you for your comment Nigel 🌷
Yes, the future was brighter than I imagined.

I stayed still,
But the whole world moved
And soon I was in a different place.

Thanks also to all those who have clicked 'Like' 💐

Inside your heart
poetry lives on
future writes only
away from darkness.
