You and I

I gave everything

   but realized I had nothing

I tried to take it back

   but was not allowed to


You finally gave

   but it’s a burning barren emptiness

You wanted repayment

   but only saw one reflection


I kept holding onto nothing

   but finally I let that nothing go



There is beauty in the world yet

where my greed for adventure drives all I can get

it fills me with an unquenchable thirst for life

as I move on from all my afflicted strife

to conquer my own unknown
