LORD OF NOTHINGNESS / Poem by Maria Miraglia

Poem by Maria Miraglia



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 what
doesn’t belong to you
just naive minds may think
this can give you
a sense of fulfillment
make you feel the lord
of the immaginary 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 can 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

@ Maria Miraglia
