Zero

original

Zero

Feelings of worthlessness

Rose colored lenses

Shattered by cruel words

Blinded by my sudden awareness

Vile creature, I see your true form

Twisted words spit from your forked tongue

The mask from whence you hide

Crumbles

I am broken

As you wish me to be

Always the zero

Never the ten

Lies covered in confectionery sugar

Melting away

A deluge of tears

I’m no longer a ghost

Paint me the villain

The colors burn my skin

Always the zero

Never the ten
