Nothing But a Line

Boom a light, but darkness
Bang a sound, but silence
Ahhh a smell, but not for long
"Ow" a touch, but no one to rescue you
"Please" a beg, but no one to give

"Look down" a phrase
Interpreted it can mean many things

But taken literally, it tilts its head down
Nothing But a Line is on the ground

The line leads, it follows
The line sings, but it is deaf
The line ends, it stops

"Look up", two words that speak many languages
But literally, it tilts its head up

It's the NBL a basketball league
The little boys dream, but just add an a and

Its Nothing But a Line, take that a away
And there's still nothing but a line
Between dream and reality
