The Importance of Being Nothing

I need you, but only
So you can break me, tenderly
Into tiny particles, crush
Me into the finest powder, whiffed
Away by your precious breath, such
That eventually, in an instant
I become nothing, because
Nothing is of more importance than you

  1. Dear Sonya,

    Thank you for sharing this poem with us. I like the atmosphere it creates about relating to that which may bring one to nothing.

    All good wishes,



I would love to have your thoughts
