Better

A futile and doomed love
May be worse than nothing,
For nothing is nonexistence --
No impact, no effect, no feeling;
But this drains emotion and motivation.
This is my talent buried in the earth,
A fey magnet for thoughts and hopes,
A roach motel for the soul;
Its synthetically sweet fumes beckon,
And enervate and kill.

    Mike, nothing is just a state of mind.. the perfect state of mind at that... a very deep poem, of what we create and kill... love is an emotion not even the fumes, can reach.. super enjoyed your poem..always..pd
