Collecting Nothing

Nicole collects words into a poem.

The Lithium Chronicles

I waste time
wishing I could go
back and collect
wasted moments spent
waiting for something
that never came,
or ended too fast,
or just wasn’t enough.
And the absurdity of it all,
wasting time over
wasted time, collecting nothing
upon nothing to fill a hole
where nothing lives, is the only way
to assure that nothing
will leave me
empty again.
