Favorite Quote:
People say i'm strange does that make me a stranger, My best friend was born in a manger


My ears open to the sounds around me but they hear
Nothing
My eyes widen to the sights around me but they see
Nothing
I try to feel something that’s real but still
Nothing

Nothingness surrounds me, this void empty space
Of Nothing
The prickly rock jabbing into my feet is all I feel.
I continue to walk with these weights on my feet
Still I reach nothing.

No destination
No captivating scenery
No taste to be tasted
Nothing

I fall to my knees from the fatigue that haunts me
Crawling in desperation, I reach out my hand and feel a door
So happy and invigorated I open the door in hopes of finding something
But my heart grows cold when the truth unfolds to find that it leads

To Nothing.

A firefly dances in front of my face


The author's comments:
This poem takes place in a void space of absolutely nothing. When readers see this, I want them to picture themselves in just a void black space of nothing and how maddening it would be to walk forever and ever to just keep finding hopelessness, But there is always a glimmer of hope
