Nothing Anymore

Nothing's here, nothing's there

Nothing's coming, nothing's going

Nothing's connecting, nothing's sticking

Nothing's inspiring, nothing's worth desiring



All of this informative dialogue

And each of these scenic examples

This keyboard keeps tapping

A bunch of nonsensical letters to be deleted



Why isn't anything thought provoking

Why isn't it urging me on to keep going

Enough doesn't cover it anymore!

I can't even take this anymore!



Where did my pen start to quiver

Where did my ink start to run dry

My fingers spasm from the intensity

This speed is no longer manageable



My wrists throb, begging me to stop

And with each ache it's accompanied

By questions, by fears, by frustration

Overwhelming, without being answered!



Everything keeps droning on and on

But nothing makes sense anymore

What else do I have to sacrifice

Who else is going to leave before I succeed



There are too many roundabouts

Too many obstacles, setbacks, diverging paths

Not enough me to be spread so thinly

Stretching, each break echoing all around me



Please… please, please, please…

I can't anymore, not this anymore

I'm done, let me run, let me out!

Let me go, leave me free, can't you see?!



Nothing's here, nothing's there

Nothing's coming, nothing's going

Nothing's connecting, nothing's sticking

Nothing's inspiring, nothing's worth desiring



Nothing else, nothing more, nothing to adore

Nothing will never let me be

Nothing left to do, I'm nothing without this

But this is killing me, so I will stick to nothing and die skillfully...
