Everything means Nothing

There’s a space in the darkness.
I can open it, like a bag.
For you.
But I won’t.
Because you are the monster,
The evil by nature,
The one,
who’s using the dark in the wrong way.

There’s the life between sounds.
I can sing it, like a Malaysian frog.
For you.
But I won’t.
Because you are the cough,
Deep inside of me,
The one,
who’s pushing the fire from the Earth’s grave.

There’s a stillness in the hurricane.
I can destroy it, like a theremin.
For you.
But I wont.
Because you are the shadow,
Of the human power,
The one,
who’s scared to meet yourself with every sunrise.

There’s a hole inside of your ear.
I can jump there, in and out.
For you.
But I won’t.
Because you are the smoke
Clouding around me,
The one,
who’s pricking the breathing with fears of doubt.

There’s nothing inside of you.
I can fill it with love.
But I won’t…

    • I hope it is, maybe bcz it’s simple. I’ve tried to write it as simple as possible. I read yesterday Murakami and he said: “we don’t need pretentious, fancy phrases to understand the world around us”.. And glad u liked it ✌️

  1. 2modestminds….save your energy! Ray, does not seem to take compliments well! So, I think we could keep them to our selves. We can fill a balloon with the ‘compliments’ and present them to her on her birthday!!!

  2. Love it… but need a clarification “I can sing it, like a Malaysian frog.” How do they sing, only seen singing frogs in the cartoons but not sure they were Malaysian frogs 😆😆

  3. There’s a street beside you.
    I can map it, step by step, like a flickering light.
    For you.
    But I won’t.
    Because you were the hand.
    In my darkest hours.
    The one.
    That left me standing, alone in nothingness.
