The Blank Page

FREE WRITING

10
I wish to begin with silence.
Silence so soundless that it drowns
out the white noise.
And this silence will fill the void.
A vast void of emptiness.
A void that never ends.

There'll be light but no shadows.
Just plain light.
No corners to illuminate.
No soft edges or hard edges
that play with the light.
Clear light glaring against
the blinding blankness.

Stillness will reign.
Quiet and unmoving.
Spreading through
the never-ending white space.
To nowhere and beyond.
Ceaseless, infinite.
Nothingness spreading
far and wide
to corners of a chasm
they'll never find. 

An endless, limitless,
boundless space that runs
far forever in every way.
Hollow to its core.
Bare to its bones.
Broad and barren
and soundless with stillness.
This hushed abyss.
This deep pit.
This vacuum. 

And finally,
I will place a writer
at the centre
of this gaping oblivion
and watch them
bring it to life. 
Tell me this isn't what a blank page feels like. Isn't it awesome how as writers we can build entire worlds out of Nothing :) but our creativity and imagination? 

P.S. - This is my first piece on Write the World so kinda nervous and excited.Thoughts, opinions and reviews are always welcome. :)

    re: Okay, I'll try (And I'll delete this once you reply).

    I have a friend who's name is 'Tara', which means star in Hindi.... This was my hunch....

    But then, you said you planned on using Sia as your name here, so I'm not sure I'm right XD

    Re: thanks for your comment! It was very reassuring.
    Also, I love this piece! It was so unique but it worked so, so well. You created such a wonderful ambience that I don’t quite know how to describe, and I was completely captivated and immersed in the piece. The short, one line sentences worked really well in creating a sense of solidity and firm clarity, and I really liked the line ‘stillness will reign’ to start a stanza. And the ending was great! Overall, a wonderful piece that I just want to read again and again.
    P.s. I loooovvvveee your username. Stars are amazing XD

    I think your ending is great; it gives us gentle answers as to what's going on and who could be the narrator. Also, so significant to write about a blank page as your first piece!
