NOTHING

  1. I'm trying to write something beautiful.
  2. Something meaningful.
  3. Something...
  4. Anything.
  5. But the churning sludge of self doubt has it's tendrils gripped tightly around my brain.
  6. Blinding me with it's murky blackness.
  7. Reaching down and ripping through my chest,
  8. Grabbing my heart and twisting,
  9. And squeezing,
  10. And wrenching,
  11. And it won't let go.
  12. No matter how much I beg and plead.
  13. Let go.
  14. Please let go.
  15. Let me go from this.
  16. Relief will come,
  17. In time.
  18. But until then,
  19. Nothing.
