Just A Nobody

by Psycho Monkey

Psycho Monkey Four years ago I took a Creative Writing class. This is one of three poems I wrote in tribute to my favorite video game, Kingdom Hearts. Amusingly enough, the structure is similar in appearance to the Nobody Sigil.
A heart… if I had a heart
Ripped from my body, tearing me apart
This empty shell used to be somebody,
But now I am just a Nobody

Rejected by both the darkness and light
I’m left teetering on the edge of nothingness tonight
Of all emotion I am devoid
Lost forever roaming this empty void

Love, happiness, joy, pleasure, I feel nothing
Anger, hate, sorrow, despair, I wish I could feel something
Under the sacred moon I yearn
Will my heart ever return?

My lost heart denies me the ability to feel
With every passing day I find it hard to believe this real
Even as I go on pretending to exist
This emptiness inside continues to persist

A creature of nothing lost in a World That Never Was
I wander the city of in between without a cause
Its hollow empty streets echo with somber melodies
They are a lot like me, all they have left are memories

Against my incompleteness I have desperately fought
Wondering if I will ever reach the Alter of Naught
This empty vessel used to be somebody
But now I am just a Nobody​
