Neutral Blackness

Updated on December 8, 2010

Neutral Blackness

Emptiness spills from dark corners
Nothingness oozes from vacant space
Numbness kills all emotion
Light seeping away
Replaced by infinity
Easing onward into complacency
Luke-warm hearts
Life begins and ends in the middle
Fade out fade in
Fade away
Neutral blackness shines bright

At the end of the tunnel
Never ending black whole
Swallowing all
Regurgitating it's immortal dead insides
Onto and into the surrounding nothing
Of our big little world


A feeling within us that we do not belong. Trying to find your place in what can seem to be a dark and cold world. It plagues us, eating away at our hearts. The constant search for fulfillment and the feeling that you will never find it. If you feel complete. If you feel whole. You are one of the lucky ones.

      I am one of the lucky ones, and for quite some time now I have felt fulfilled, whole and complete :) I am very well aware of how lucky I am, but thank you for reminding me again. Nonetheless, I absolutely love your poetry - it's so very powerful, and very intelligently written. Your mind is an incredible place, I think.

      I very much look forward to reading more hubs from you.
