Poem: Nothingness


By: Joi Maree Flowers

Numb of love
Existing in life
Deprived of will power
A few reasons as to why


By peers and enemies
Those names who have stopped calling hers

Left alone in darkness
Entrapped between four walls

Aging without growing
Blank pages of a story

Enough of nothing
Less of something

When the purpose of being
Should alone fill her cup to full

Yet her well is dry
And their is no reserved supply

She could be more
If only she desired to be

Better than her limitations
Greater than her agony

If only she saw herself
As being

More than the taunts
Of those haunted voices

A greater purpose
A greater power

She could rise into her light
To become

Something more
Than her black of
