Don’t be afraid of the blank – A Poem

I stare at blank Word docs

each time I sit at my computer.

The blank page,

nothing is scarier to a writer

or more invigorating.

The lack of depth, of character

of purpose

of pride

of honesty

of loss

of all the things the writer is scared to show,

frightened to reveal to the reader

because deep down, the writer knows

they know

more than anyone

what lies in the corners

where the light from a barely-lit bulb

doesn’t reach.
