"All you left with is nothing. " "All you are left with is nothing."
Which one is correct? The latter one makes more sense to me. Thanks in advance!

"All you left with is nothing" means that you left a place with nothing, eg, you went to an event that had prizes, but you didn't win anything, so you left with nothing. Note that the construction "All you left with is nothing" is non-standard and would be best said "And you left with nothing."
"All you are left with is nothing" means that you had something but now you have nothing, eg, you saved up lots of money and spent it on stupid things. Now, all you are left with is nothing. Again, this is non-standard. You could say it informally and be understood, but "Now you have nothing left" is better.
