Blank.



The blank mind
Resists thoughts
 In fear of the known,
And strives to remain blank.

The spilt ink  
Renders blank paper
Useless.
But I see 
Through the eyes of Rorschach.
The blank paper 
Now stained
Evokes interpretations
Some vivid
Some contrived
Some blunt.


The blank mind-
Now stained-
By thoughts,
Pervading all space
Makes room for doubt.
Some sicken
Some relieve
Some persist.

But the mind refuses 
To budge
And continues
To strive
To remain blank,
and
To outlast the fear-
of the known.
