I pray to God in the day
I pray to God at night
I wake up to nothing
And nothing holds me tight

I feel blue all the time
Like the world is falling down
But it has already happened
I'm pushed under everything
I lye still below my own self

I am all alone
In this little world
On my own island of ego
Nothing can reach me
Not even you

the only easy day was yesterday.

is this poem about a certain someone?

and also, when you speak of "nothing"

[i wake up to nothing/ nothing holds me tight] i give you extreme praise on that line. it's beautiful, and gives a vivd picture of... well, nothing. :) beautiful, and if it is [or isnt] about someone, id appreciate to know what gave you this idea. =) Im Rina btw. nice to meet you
