Time To Think Cut Short

Sitting in a room
with a look-a-like mind
and a sound-a-like soul
watching the bag get empty
the world can't comprehend
the worth of this nothing
I watch the world go sideways
from the other side of the window
glass so sad I want to end its misery
and take in the view
Three years left
and it'll all be over
like the time we had has ended
no more do we sit and wait
for nothing to happen but sit and wait for the end of the world
which came quicker than we had expected
then the trip to the past
didn't stop when we thought
when it finally ends
it'll never be the same.

This will certify that the above work is completely original

This is really good! I think this is my favorite of your poems, especially the beginning of it. just a suggestion, be careful to use words like "nothing" or "nowhere." they are pretty strong words, and probably should be used when making a point, not as filler. Make sure you know why you're using each word!

It was almost two years ago. I have this friend who writes as well and he just really got me into it and I started doing it more and more until it became this amazing part of my life.
