Blank

Tonight
I am blank
Having finished the chapter
Excited to see what happens
Next…and then…nothing
No page numbers, no story
Not even an errant smudge, only
Empty unblinking pages
A mistake by the binder, or…
For a millisecond of a moment
Fear catches, steals my breath
What if all the rest are blank
Do I dare test it, turn the page
Or put it down and close my eyes
Content enough to know that I
Even got this far, yes, perhaps
Tomorrow I’ll have the courage
Because tonight
I am blank
