I had things outside myself;
the sky,
the earth,
the same concern (of my nature.)

But the idea of
nothing
was no less or more than
something out of nothing,

That is to say,
I knew I was

I have never knew of your individual existence until now, but I feel as if we, as if our minds, our energies have been connected for countless years. I suppose, however, that maybe they have always been. Your work is almost like deja vu...I've seen all of these words before, all scrambled up in my head; and you have made them whole and literal. And for this I thank you.

Thank you for the kind words. I'm inclined to believe you must know me, tho. One comment on the day your account was created and none since; seems quite deliberate to me.

"the sky, the earth" and in the same breath, "of my nature"
and also, "that is to say,"

I really don't know much about the world of Poetry but these poems caught my eye and they amaze me! I've been checking out these submissions of yours with words taken out of book pages and they're simply outstanding.

I really do love these poems. Consider me a fan.

this is like a punch in the face, and im not sure why. i'll have to think about it.

lol well, I suppose it means to say that it doesn't really matter what you believe, if you can never really know for sure, it doesn't matter if you believe something or nothing...

It's bleak, I suppose. I hope you don't hurt too badly, lol.

It's a well reasoned description of feeling as you have no one and nothing close to you.

haha.. a little too well reasoned, perhaps.
