comfort in the nothingness | SoCs prose

Happy Saturday, everyone! This stream of consciousness piece is written for Linda G. Hill’s SOC Saturdays with the prompt as “coffee, tea, or me.” Enjoy!


you aren’t you. you’re everything everyone thinks you are. you aren’t your own skin, you can’t feel your bones. the words in your brain do not exist. am I coffee, tea, or me? I’m neither and none, and that is where I find my peace.

I find my peace not in the drink or in my bones, but in the fact that I am nothing more than what those things make me; there is a power in not mattering because then everything you do starts to matter.

Nothing makes sense. I’m feeling better, but what will I know is the best? What is the best? When will I be my best?

I said it before and I say it again now: What is meaning, is there meaning, in feeling better in the brain? Maybe I should answer that question myself for once and say “no.”
