Empty

Vacant
barren
stripped
of inspiration . . .
lingering
only to observe
with nothing to say
mute
speechless
blind to ideas
words
revelation
or thoughts relevant
to anything . . . void
of meaning
empty
of vision
clarity
insight
lacking all that
makes life
art
beautiful
worth living . . .
listless
blank
uninspired
without reason
purpose
or guidance . . .
wandering
aimlessly
searching
for anything
resembling
a destination.
Lost
lonely
needing
something
to take
away this nothing . . .
something
to make me feel  
bleed
scream  
anything . . .
to make me see
depth
in these
shallow waters
in these
quite times
when the silence
says
nothing.
