Black and White


Black & White

I painted my nails last night.

White, although I wanted black.

White feels like a blank canvas

Black feels like,

Like,

One that’s filled in.

One that doesn’t feel empty.

When you think nothing,

Do you think black?

I think white.

Blank.

Blank.

I don’t want blank.

I want something.

But what?

I don’t know, really.

I just want to grasp onto something

And for me

‘Something’ is something.

Something that I don’t know yet

Someone I don’t know yet.

Odd, how the small things make you ask big questions.
