Nothing left



Tear drops dampen the paper I write on. I’m as hollow as the pen that spills the blotchy ink on the page. Smeared and smudged stains reminds me, I don’t want to be seen.
Erase me, for I am but a mistake.

    We all feel this way sometimes. With few words you expressed powerful emotion. Nice usage of metaphors, especially the smeared and smudged stains.
