Throne Of Nothing- Poem about loss

Updated on January 14, 2013

Title: Throne of Nothing

You stitched up my skin

But I was far beyond repair

The scars an eastern harmony

Of modernized despair

With tears that freeze in place

From all the things I’ve seen

You can call me nightmare

A broken, frail fiend

I walk with a limp

Cause the weights too much to bear

The screaming, and shouting, and insanity

Like a scene from yesterday

Replaying visions in my eyes

A single hope, and a million lies

To obtain just one moment

Where things could feel meant to be

You can touch my skin

Feel it fueled and pumped within

Cause sadness has a way of showing

But never allows a way of growing

Cause when sorrow seeps down to the bone

Where broken dreams have their own throne

Where everything is all alone

And alone is all I feel

So reach for my hand, before it’s too frail

Before skin absolves down to the nail

Before I can’t speak, a lost voice

While I still have some form of choice

Just be there…just hold out

Cause standing at my throne of nothing

I'm praying for the end to happen fast

      Thank you so much sir :) I appreciate it, and I find poetry to be energized story telling ...smaller amount of space to provide a message of your choosing, much of your work has messages behind it, it's what fuels us as writers... I take it as such a compliment that you enjoy my writing.

      You write like an old soul who is like a time traveler and yet you convey so well the current world you live in with your poetic feelings with simple but effective lines and beautifully chosen words - hubbravo from the epi-man for this piece . There is always meaningful intent and a story/morale behind everything you write ..... lake erie time 12:47pm and sending you warm wishes and good energy from ontario canada
