Emptying the Filled Cup

Letting it all go

slowly and quietly into the nothingness of the world

Allowing drop after drop

to fall into the drain

Repeatedly remembering the cause

of such great sorrow

There is no pain

Only numbness and disgrace

Only tears

Wishing instead that is would just run over

Instead of having to be poured out

from within

No other land

is like this space

Never again can it be filled

Once its gone

It is gone

Down into the sewer

Where the street rats live

Feeding them

Fueling them

Giving them flames for their fire

Stop pouring

Wait

Dont let anymore go

Keep it

Keep it

Cause its mighty low

Save it

Save it

Cause there is no overflow left

and

the

cup

is

filled

of

nothing

from

now

on

.
