How white the pages seem!
Like an endless void,
They seem to stretch on and on.
A slash of darkness,
And the book starts.

I came up with this poem, when I was writing this poem! I was just staring at a blank Document, thinking of what to write, when the blank page really appealed to me.

I like the cheer and imagery in the beginning. I personally thought it was kind of short, like it needs a line or two more, but it's a very captivating and cozy piece for sure. Good luck and keep writing!
