7 minutes (part 1)

there is a blank space
not a slate to draw plans on
no foundation,
not a place for hope or dreams
there is no starting place
no ending place, either
a middle space
before the end
after the beginning,
i search for
the calm
a darkness
i pull back nothing,
an absence
that not even light can escape
