she writes a poem

By: Michelle Chan

words fill the pages
the pages fill the void
void an existence
and her head is filled with these words
not knowing their meaning
she writes but the words lose reason
she writes and the words are empty
she lives without understanding
the meaning lost in time
the meaning, she sought for it.

from her head to the void
from the void to the pages
and on those word-filled pages
meaning found.
