the desperate canvas of nothingness

back into the void
after weeks of
purposeful activity
inactivity
brought me down
deep down
blank space
can’t face
the concept of
the lack of
necessity
we have our happy days
think nothing of the complexities
of the universe or
the desperate canvas
of nothingness

then we hit the void
why ever we can’t know
but we do hit it
head first
dizzying spins
cartoon exclamation points
and we are left again
wondering
why
it’s all so inane
so futile
infantile
would that we were infants
too new to think
these inevitable
thoughts
melancholy
why worry
why bother
why
