An empty vessel.

Can you feel my pain

Hear my sigh of disbelief

I know it’s not life or death

I shouldn’t feel this grief

There are no words emitting

Today, again and again

This task will not defeat me

Bear with me if you will

I’m none of these, so I’m not exasperated

I’m at a loss for words.

You’ll be glad to know

No poetry today

Just a play on words.
