LORD OF NOTHINGNESS / Poem by Maria Miraglia

Poem by Maria Miraglia

 

LORD OF NOTHINGNESS

Great your wish to stand out
to shine get applause
feel the best
of all and anywhere
to let your ego grow
like a hot air balloon
aware you fill the spaces
that belong to others
carelessly stealing anything you can
just naive minds may think
this can give you
a sense of fulfilment
make you feel the lord
of the imaginary realm
of nothingness
I wonder instead
how great is your void inside
how much you miss
and want
consciously or unconsciously
fill with anything you get
from the filthy air
surrounding your misery life
I’d be your mirror
in one of your sad mornings
and seize from your gaze
what you read on it
