Scale – 12 – nothing

1.

There was, never was
Near the start, past the middle
There is, there shall be

2.

for what i felt for you,
so laden,
heavy,
sure,

was a shock to
watch our ocean
drain in
to the neighbor’s
backyard

it was the difference
between what
we emptied
by our own devices
and what vanished
no matter how
tightly I held on

3. nothing, city

there are those who will claim
this city is devouring their souls

there are those who feed it while
they watch themselves grow
