Blank

Blank
As the paper before I write
As a cloudy, black, starless night,

Blank
As your face while it ignores,
The voice that it once perhaps adored.

Blank
Eyes that don’t see but coldly stare
Hiding any hint that might show you care.

Blank
As your best poker face trying to bluff,
Or answers that you can’t be bothered to make up.

Blank
Slate for me to draw on for you,
Give you something new that you can chew.

Blank
Do you want me to try to fill one in?
Make something up with a happy end?

Blank,
Bet you can’t even pretend to care
About any of this, or what’s in store.

Blank,
Yeah, I bet you’ll just blankly stare
As I walk right out that blanking door.

  1. I love it — I love the repetition and the way you give “blank” substance. I think it is fun to be able to bring substance to something that connotes emptiness.
