But Then There was Nothing

But then there was nothing

Nothing to say

Except for the words

That bubbled inside me


All I could manage

was "Have a good day,"

When really I felt

Like screaming and crying


Like laughing and smiling

Like singing and dancing

Like begging and pleading

Like hoping and Prancing


Like sulking and sobbing

Like standing and sitting

Like yelling, accusing

Like scratching and biting


Like wondering forever

Like finally knowing

Like lying and bluffing

But then...

There was nothing.

The End
