Reflection On This "Nothing"

"Nothing" is never nothing, it's always something, which by all accounts can be rather confusing. I use this poem to describe how I feel about "nothing."

Reflection On This "Nothing"

He fades--
his emptiness invokes--it gives
it pays homage to the filler.
It complements as like a memory
yet trips into the abyss.

What You Do

Like fickleness it teases,
brings images to the mind then flees.
Into the blank, into the space,
so much more and yet no more.
Nothing--you dog you,
you start like a shout
and end like a dream.

Forgettable but an activist
that puts to work other hands.

Taking a Piece Out Of Nothing

You bring me everything to lose,
and leave me with your namesake to gain.
Personal vanity brings you out,
labels you and claims your existence.
"It was nothing," but you speak volumes.
In your brief flash of fame you make your mark.
You are like the flame without the spark.


Abyss, Activist, Emptiness, Existence, Fades, Homage, Memory, Nothing, Vanity

My real passion is writing poetry, but I also have begun to dabble in writing a children's story and a fictional novel. I also like finding fun facts about animals, I enjoy researching similar areas.
