  Staring at me...
taunting, laughing, jeering
in its stark nothingness;
daring me to conquer its leering white face,
to tread my ink stained thoughtsteps
through its wordless desert,
to disturb those featureless sands of emptiness
with trails of meaning and significance
where neither exist.

It is for you I write,
for me,
for everyone and no one.
To fill the empty spaces of life with something...
that may or may not ever matter
except to the blank page,
sacrificing its sterile environment freely,
without judgment, without comment,
without fear, joy, critique or retribution.

It expresses nothing
so that I can express everything...
or nothing if I prefer,
keeping its silent vigil
and eternally.

Waiting for something...
for someone...
for me,
To scar its countenance
with the ravings of forever.
