The Last Version of the Word

The word is empty,
So is my soul,
A Godless Jesus forgotten by sins n’ sanctity,
A crime avoided by cruelty’s buds
And blood’s closed springs,
Or just a void section of life.

The word wanted to be a leaf,
Then a thunder,
Once thought its name was “pain”,
Other times “blue”, “question” or “poem”,
But all of those have already had other bodies,
So the word is alone,
Like a black star on night’s sky,
Like me now.

The word is a wingless fly
Or a rayless sun drowned into dark
And it finds a bottle on the bottom of time,
With a message inside:
“You are Nothing“.
