Nothing

Written by , Posted in Love Poetry

I raise my right hand, she does too.

I fake a smile and she follows.

I look away, she turns her head.

I close my eyes, she’s gone…

I follow.

 

She has a face I barely recognize,but somehow I’ve always known.

Layer by layer she peels away masks…

Raw flesh exposes her wounds.

 

Alas! Familiar pain.

The claws of Torture, whispers of Regret.

 

Stripped of it all, I’m faced with the truth.

I reach out to my own reflection.

 

And…

 

I see nothing.

I see nothing.

I feel nothing.

I feel nothing.

I know nothing.

I know nothing.

 

You have stripped me of all of my veils,

You’ve undone all my knots, shut my doors.

You’ve torn apart all my disguises…

You’ve freed me from my favorite webs.

Everything dear to me, You’ve taken.

All my dreams, You have crushed.

All my desires You’ve cut off.

 

And I swear, I see nothing.

Vanity of vanities! My heart cries out.

 

Dead dreams, dead memories, dead hope.

Dead me.

 

You have turned me into nothing…

You’ve emptied me.

Or perhaps…

I’m wrong.

Perhaps, it’s by Your Grace, You let me see, the me I always was.

The me, for so long, I refused to see.

 

Perhaps, You loved me so much, you tore apart my veils,

Perhaps, You loved me so much, you peeled away my every mask.

Perhaps, you loved me so much, you saved me from my own masquerade.

… freed me from my own set up trap.

 

I see nothing.

 

But Dearest Love, my Father and my Savior…

I read before, You made the heavens out of nothing.

And out of nothing you composed the seas.

Out of nothing the stars were formed,

and Time took its course out of nothing.

 

Dear Father, hear my plea!

 

I see nothing.

I see nothing.

I feel nothing.

I feel nothing.

I know nothing.

I know nothing.

 

Take the nothing that I am, and make a new heart in me.

Lace my desires into Your own,

Breathe Your passions into me,

My plans submit to Yours…

Make every cell and every breath in me, forever, speak of Your amazing Love and Beauty.

Make every smile and every tear proclaim of Your wondrous works and of Your Glory!

 

Take the nothing that I am, and make a new heart in me.

 

I raise my right hand, she does too.

I fake a smile and she follows.

I look away, she turns her head.

I close my eyes, she’s gone…

I follow.

 

Dead dreams, dead memories, dead hope.

Dead me.

 

My Dearest Love, please bury me.

Please, make something out of nothing…

Breathe into me.

 

I close my eyes, she’s gone…

I follow.

 

By faith we understand that the entire universe was formed at God’s command, that what we now see did not come from anything that can be seen. Hebrews 11:3
