The Clarity of Nothing

The time when chaos takes the helm

When disordered thoughts overwhelm

The moment where you are sleeping

through the time that you’ve stopped keeping

In jars, unlabeled

Like offers never tabled

and you’re no longer able

to find your place

in a world gone mad

Seeing we’ve been had

by those smiling faces

Filling empty spaces

You wouldn’t know were there

if they didn’t pretend to care

The clarity of nothing shines true
