On The Phone - Poem by Twiggy C. Tubercio

the water in my mouth
is this what nothing tastes like?
close my eyes as it gets hotter

is this what nothing looks like?
listening to you sleep
am i hearing nothing

no
there really is no nothing
just the absence of something

    How true, we cannot feel nothing but the feeling of what is not there can be a powerful sensation. (Report) Reply
