13 (who?)
In hazy daydreams,
Rambling thoughts,
I would wonder
I would ponder
As I wander
Through these visions.
And I would see.

Would there be a you
Or me, or we,
Or would there be,
In simplicity,
At the end.

For at the end,
Of thought, or time,
Could there be,
Blankness sublime,
No need to define,
What is left behind
At the close.

Yet nothingness,
Is somethingness,
And somethingness,
Is nothing.
When everything,
Is infinity, quite,
Which in itself,
Cancels itself,
To be nothing.

Picture white.
A shade, a colour,
A type of artist's paint.
If nothingness,
Is simply white,
Or black, it might,
Then nothingness,
Is actually quite,
A something.

Imagine nothing.

At the end,
Of time and existence,
What shall remain?
If nothing,
Is something,
Something shall remain,
Possability insane,
Think in bleak disdain,
Picture this.
In the future.

At the end.
Written for a competition. Comments/Critique..??? =D

I really like this one. I had the same sentiments on the matter of nothingness as a state during my Humanities and Philosophy class. My professor couldn't agree more with me... but I only found my classmates staring and blinking at me.

Thankyou! Yes, it can be a rather confusing subject
in the least. I found myself in such a whirl when
I was writing it. A few of my close friends who
read my work read this and said it was nothing
but a jumble of words put together designed for
the soul purpose of causing confusion. I then
said, that if it is nothing but that, what in
turn in the nothingness.?

Nothingness is a state. Being nothing is still being something. Remember the Integer lines in basic algebra back in grade school? The zero's value is basically 'nothing'. Zero= Null. But it IS a number and zero DOES exist even if it's basically nothing. It has a place. It is what separates the positive and negative values in the integer line. It's the same with human emotions. Love and hate. Like and dislike. People tend to disregard the feeling of nothingness or the existence of "apathy". Apathy means feeling nothing, but not feeling anything is still a certain kind of feeling which is why the word was invented to help describe it. So yeah, the state of nonexistence of something IS existent. ^_^

You've got an interesting poem here and you deserve some credit for trying to keep the rhyme consistent throughout, even without a set rhyming scheme. It's definitely a curious piece but it feels quite soulless to me.

The way it's written seems quite analytical, like a list of thoughts derived from examination. Perhaps that was what you were going for. All the same, it certainly doesn't tarnish the piece and you've definitely written well here.

What it lacks in emotion, it makes up for in thought.
