Best Little Known Nothing Poems

+ Fav Poet


As the days go by you rub away at me 
and peel back the pages of my skin
Soon I shall be raw, sore and broken 
As you undo me 
So you have undone me again

And I am me and you are you 
And we are nothing

I am broken 
your hands are too small to gather me up 
so I fall through the cracks of your fingers
each day a little more

Then what's left is the black side 
The dark side
The spiteful sharp bits 
Like the leftovers of a roast chicken

Photos of us are in the shadows 
Overcast by clouds 
Our hands held strong 
Covered by darkness 
Sat with the what ifs and the could've done

So I wait 
And you wait 
For the sun to shift and show us the light
But the clouds don't move
 And we never again feel the same

So we are gone 
Fallen, to the low ground 
The ground beneath the grounds 
where people rarely go as they never make it back again

Claw away at the mud cracked on our bodies
 trying to reach the light

Every day
The we that we were is further away

After a time we close our eyes and forget
What was 
Until there is nothing left of us
Just two people that used to be in love
