A simple expanse of nothing,
Just a piece of plain white chalk in my hand.
I stare into the black wall
And a blank expanse of nothing is here to occupy me.
One word, one thought
Leading to another,
Until my mind filters through my fingers
To this simple expanse of sympathy.
I stand back and see that after it all,
After all that I've written here
On this black expanse of nothing
The one word standing out,
Made up of all the rest
Is so simple.
It only spells LIFE.
I guess this is just my life
Told by an expanse of nothing,
When really it's everything.
An expanse of everything.
