Five-Hundred Word Challenge 900: Peel it all Back

Staring at the screen and trying to peel it all back in order to see what lies beyond the screen. I do know what is behind the screen, but of course I am talking about something far beyond.

What will be there? Will there be anything at all? Is there even a point in thinking about this? Maybe, though of course maybe not, In any event, I will try and find a way to peel it all back and see what is there and perhaps even hope a little that there will be something discovered. Who knows if there will be anything there anyway? Not I, that is for certain.

However, if I do not try and peel everything back, then I might just never find out, so finding out is the way to go at the moment as that is what I feel like writing and so I am at the whimsy of the writing today.

Now, I stare and stare and then I stare some more and I see nothing. Nothing appears and there is nothing revealing itself. I’m trying to workout  which is the right way to stare at this thing but nothing is coming forward, but of course there is no point ion stopping as of yet as I have not been doing the staring for long. Therefore I continue to stare and I continue to look at the screen. It is blank; well, there is stuff on the screen, but it is blank in a sense. It feels very much like an untouched canvass, waiting for something and I am yet to work out what that something is. However, what I do know is that its blankness is of no concern to me.

I stare into it and I stare around it, but there is no staring through to see what is on the other side. No matter how I try, there is nothing, but I keep on trying. There must be a way. There must be some sort of hint; a clue that will lead to that which is what I am hoping to do; peel it all back and see what is behind the screen.

I keep on staring and looking to see what is beyond but all I see is the imagery of circuitry and there is little else I can locate. The corner of the wall is there, but I can see that just above the screen. Little, if anything, reveals itself and so I am here, continuing to stare and looking to see what lies beyond. Will it reveal itself? Will I need to find a way to reveal it? I know not of what it is that I need to do, but I keep on doing that which I have done thus far and perhaps maybe there will be a little something that I can work with and find something more than what it is that I currently see, but until then I shall keep on staring and hoping.

The time it took to write five-hundred words: 05:33:58

I think this is rather weak. There is a workable idea in there somewhere, but I don’t think I did it justice.

Written at home.
