A poem with and without a point.

A Vaccuum Contemplates Existence
by Sundrowner (Austin Runyon)

Nothing exists
What you see what you perceive to be
And what others see and perceive to be
Is merely the thought of existence
The thought of what might have been
A thought dreamt up a by black void
That spreads infinitely across what would be time and space
But there is no time and space
And a void cannot think
This is just an echo of what it would think if it could
Probably we would imagine
But there is no probably because nothingness is absolute
It simply is nothing and encompasses everything
Which is either impressive or insignificant depending on your perspective
If perspective were possible without location or cognition
A void longing, if it could long, for what will never be
Because there will never be anything
And that is all there will ever will be
